WOW! So we were pretty busy in July. We celebrated our ONE YEAR Anniversary, and with that, we were able to pay forward TWO Ancestry DNA Kits, to TWO lucky winners in thanks to our "Best Genes You'll Ever Wear" program.

We are proud that we were able to do this, but not without the help of you, our community.

If anyone hasn’t been to our website lately, we have a “new look” for our “new year”! It’s is very exciting for us to see the great changes and new additions. Go and visit!!

"Best Genes You'll Ever Wear" Program

Again, as always, we are reaching out to you our community to help us in keeping our "Best Genes You'll Ever Wear" program going. And to help us out with even a small gift, so that we can continue to use the databases, and all forms of social media, in helping you our community in finding your family. As you know all of our Angels volunteer their own personal time, and their own computers/ laptops/cell phones, we would love them to have the most up to date abilities so that we can continue to help. To give or see some of our past recipients please click here.


Before the kids go back to school, and while you still have some downtime, remember there is still time to pick up one of our recommended summer reads. I especially want to recommend again, “It’s Not About You”, by Brooke Randolph LMHC. This is a must-have for anyone touched by adoption. It is definitely an impressive read for adoptees, adopted parents, and birth parents/families.

We want to congratulate M.G. on finding your birth mother with the help of our amazing Angels. Let’s keep this green wave going! Happy Summer everyone!!!

We hope you will read our monthly news, and come back often to our website, Facebook page, and Instagram.

Interested in Sharing Your Story?

We welcome anyone who would like to share their own story of adoption, through your own words. Please let us know, and we will feature your story. Everyone’s story is important, and every story has something to offer for everyone. It is also a very cathartic way of expressing your fears, your search questions, or your approach to a new journey.

August 1, 2018 we saw Arkansas change their laws regarding how an adult adoptee may request and obtain an original birth certificate. A birth parent may also file a separate contact preference form at any time. Here at ARSS, we strongly feel that ANY change in a positive direction is a good change. Let’s keep on our congresspeople for MORE CHANGE in MORE STATES. There are only 9 unrestricted states in our union. That is horrible. We are not dogs, we are human beings, who didn’t choose to be adopted through a 3rd party contract! We deserve the RIGHT to know who we are and where we come from! ​Forms and information about the new law are now available on the Arkansas Department of Health website:

New York- We need YOUR signature! Help New York adoptees regain unrestricted access to their original birth certificate Please sign regardless of the state you reside in and share! Every adoptee should be able to access THEIR records, let's make this happen for New York ARSS Community! Click here to help!! ​

Remember to make your voice heard!!!
