Adoption Ring Voted Forbes "Best of the Web"
Welcome! The Adoption Ring is a free public service ring dedicated to the all adoption triad members. Founded in 1996 by an adoptee, adoptive parent and a birthmother, it is an ever expanding group of pages designed to allow web surfers to navigate a wide variety of informational adoption sites just by clicking the "Back and "Next" buttons found on each page.

From any page in the ring you can click on a "Next" button to go to the next site, eventually bringing you back to where you started. Or browse a listing of current Adoption Ring members to help you find what you're looking for.

Relax and enjoy the ride!
