Through storytelling and shared experiences, Overcoming Odds raises awareness within the adoption and foster care community, restores a sense of belonging and family, and provides resources for future adoptive parents. Here's how we are doing this:

1. Building A Community That Lasts

Today, you have decided to join millions of other orphans and adoptees that all share one common mission.

At Overcoming Odds, we aim to create a global community, which will serve as a secondary family to those in need, no matter what the circumstances may be.

A family that will provide:

  • A safe place where orphans, adoptees, friends and family members, can share their personal experiences of going through the adoption process

  • Resources, such as blog publications and videos shared by adoptees, orphans, and adoptive parents, regarding their personal experiences

  • Access to publications from professionals who have been researching corruption within the adoption industry

2. Raising Awareness About The Adoption Process

Before problems can be solved, they must be brought to the attention of those in power.

WE ARE ALL IN POWER.

At Overcoming Odds, one of our goals is to raise awareness about the corruption in the adoption industry and highlight positive changes.

The biggest problems we aim to solve relate to:

3. Promoting Sustainable Change

The problems in the adoption industry are larger than we are as individuals but, by coming together as a community, our ability to take on these problems is exponential.

We understand that it will be a tough hill to climb in order to change a system that has not seen a structural change since it was first introduced in Europe.

But, we also understand that we are no longer fighting these issues as individuals. If we come together as a global, connected group, we are certain that change will follow.
