@teentalkadoption is an Instagram based online teen adoptee community created by the Scottish Adoption Teen Ambassadors.

@teentalkadoption is:

- A platform for adopted teenagers to tell their stories.
- A place for adopted teenagers to connect with other relevant services.
- A space to educate others, change practice and reduce stereotypes on adoption.
- An online support service where adopted teenagers can submit a worry or question and receive a confidential response from a Teen Ambassador.

Follow @teentalkadoption if you are a adopted teenager who wants to join our community.

Follow @teentalkadoption if you’re a adoptive parent or professional who wants to learn about the views and experiences of adopted children.

Direct Message us or use the contact form at https://www.scottishadoption.org/teentalk to submit your problem, questions, story/blog or thoughts.

We understand that some adopted young people would like to keep their adoption identity confidential. If this is the case, you or your parent can read our blogs at https://www.scottishadoption.org/teentalk, or just take a peek at our Instagram page now and then.

The Scottish Adoption Teen Ambassadors help us create new families by giving input at every Scottish Adoption preparation group. They also use their experiences and represent the views of other young people from our teen group to help train and educate other professionals.

If you would like more information about our Ambassador Programme or @teentalkadoption please contact our Children’s Worker Melanie Thomson by emailing melaine@scottishadoption.org or by calling 0131 553 5060.
