TEACHING COMPETENCY, BUILDING LEGACY, CREATING COMMUNITY
Adoption Mosaic is a BIPOC woman owned, adoptee-led mission-driven business. With the 30+ years of experience of our founder and CEO, Astrid Castro, we have built a strong community who all want to see a new future of ethical and conscious adoption.
Astrid Castro and Adoption Mosaic have created an incredible, powerful, dynamic and supportive community with their monthly series, ‘We The Experts'... Being a panelist in the series was a wonderful opportunity to share and be connected to other adoptees. The work of Adoption Mosaic in this program and others is a vital contribution to the Adoption Community. I highly recommend it to all Adopted People looking for community, inspiration, depth of knowledge, connection and a feeling of belonging.

Adoption Mosaic is an excellent resource for anyone touched by adoption from any direction. The offerings are varied, thoughtful, provocative and powerful in the way they put adoptees first... We have only benefitted from the experience. We are relieved, as parents of young adult adoptees, to have found this resource. Our daughter is also very connected to support through Adoption Mosaic which is essential as she transitions to adulthood.

From the moment I met Astrid, I knew she was the right one to help reunite me and my bio mom. There were many complexities involved with our story which is why I felt we needed a professional... When my bio mom and I reunited (with Astrid present), it was such an amazing experience. We now have an amazing relationship because of Astrid’s guidance along the way. I highly recommend Adoption Mosaic to any adoptee or birth parent. Astrid truly understands all dynamics of adoption and I am forever grateful for her help with our journey.

Adoption Mosaic is a solid rock, in the midst of a sea of information/misinformation. When I want information, resources, and learning opportunities I can trust, I turn to Adoption Mosaic. I have depended on Adoption Mosaic both personally and professionally, and am grateful for their expertise, perspectives and lived-experiences.

Adoption Mosaic is unlike any other adoptee organization I have known. Their focus is on panel events... I believe in them so much that I help them do this with my network and my network's network. Another thing I like about them is that it's adoptee-centric (and I would also add heart-centric). This means that nurture parents, nature parents, and adoptees who fit more than one part of the triad can attend.

Adoption Mosaic has been a huge support for us in navigating issues around transracial adoption and reunion with birth family. We have participated in workshops and I continue to join the Better Together Group (adult adoptees and adoptive parents). Being a parent is a journey and being an adoptive parent is a journey with some added considerations! Adoption Mosaic helps me be a more compassionate parent and I am so grateful to Astrid, Shelise and the rest of the Adoption Mosaic team for the work they do 🙂

Connecting with Astrid and Adoption Mosaic has been such a life-changing experience for our family. We have learned so much about being white/white-passing adoptive parents of a child of color...and I only wish we'd known this much when we first got started. Adoption Mosaic is a great resource for any member of the adoption constellation, and I hope this level of education becomes standard in the adoption community.
