Documentaries

Our documentary collection explores many of the joys and challenges of adoption, including teen, transracial, and open adoption stories. These films, produced by the Adoptive Families Association of BC, share the compelling perspectives of adoptees and adoptive families, and are recommended viewing for anyone interested in a lived experience of adoption as well as adoptive parents, adoptees, professionals, and those thinking of adopting.

DVD copies of these films are available through our library. Or clips from the films can be watched on our Youtube channel
