Adoptee & Mother

Kristin Marie Welch- Scheurer

Mental Health Advocate and an example of a life positively impacted by Adoption

I was adopted by an incredibly loving family, with another adopted brother. I was always told I was adopted. It was always celebrated, and I always told my story as:  ‘My biological mother was young and I had one older, very close-in-age sister, and my bio mom couldn’t afford to keep both of us.’

Years went by, I graduated from High School with Honors, obtained two business degrees from University of North Florida got married, started my career, had 2 daughters, got divorced, traveled often … I was living a pretty typical life.
