Laureen Pittman


Laureen is a happily married wife and mother of two great boys. Her adoption truth was once a secret, considered a shameful thing that happened some 50 years ago. As she has said on her blog, "some people still believe that the past (my past) and history (my history) should be hidden and denied for all eternity in the name of “privacy” or to protect others from embarrassment." After almost 50 years, Laureen decided that she is the one who owns the choice about how to fill in the blanks about her identity. She writes about those choices on her blog "Adoption: My Truth" (website link above).
