FRUA members join an engaged, supportive community that nurtures adopted children, parents, and families. They enjoy access to educational programming covering the range of the adoptive family experience. FRUA's regional structure and active Facebook and other online communities connect families to share experiences, seek help and celebrate successes. A growing Young Adult program connects and engages post-high school adoptees, and our Scholarship program supports FRUA students. Our outreach work supports orphans not yet placed in forever homes. Our direct representation to birth-country embassies and countries advocates for fact-based discourse and inter-country adoption.
