About Us

Grown in My Heart is a place where all adoptive parents, adoptees, and first moms know they feel safe to air their opinions, regardless of differences. It is a group of women joined, somehow, by adoption.

GIMH started in 2009 with just 3 writers and has grown to over 15 writers who want to share their stories, their struggles, and their success with all of you. Writing is therapy for many of us and we hope that you, the reader, can glean knowledge from our words.

As a whole, we are adoptees, birth mothers, adoptive parents, and surrogates. We are also all women who love deeply, cherish one another, and respect one another’s opinions. Individually, we are sisters, mothers, daughters, lovers, friends, writers, and most importantly, we are people who care about each other.

Join us.
