Amanda Medina - This Adoptee Life
Building confidence in community, from within...
This Adoptee Life exists for anyone who is connected to adoption. We offer empowerement coaching for adoptees who are ready to re-write their story, consultation for non-adoptees needing guidance as they support adoptees, and a community of supporting members to connect and grow with. All are welcome, adoptees are centered. We build a community on open, honest conversation, with the mission to create love, safety, and belonging, from within.
Empowering from WITHIN...
Being an adoptee can be an overwhelming experience, filled with deep questions, complicated thoughts, and conflicting emotions. It took me well into adulthood to realize where it all came from, that it has an explanation and that it all makes sense. It is my dream and mission to help fellow adoptees, not just find community, but to build confidence, love, and safety in the community, starting from within. I offer coaching for adoptees, where love, safety, validation, and support are at the core.
Do you have questions about adoption, as an adoptive parent, someone who is looking to adopt, or just someone connected to adoption in some way? If you have an adoptee in your life, understanding where their struggle might be coming from, how you can sit with them, and how you can be not just the best support – but the best support for them, are some of the things I aim to help you with, through my consulting services for non-adoptees.
Find your VOICE, find yourSELF, find your HOME!
When I first started exploring and sharing my adoptee story, I realized I wasn’t alone. I found community and fellow adoptees, who made me feel seen, heard, accepted, and loved.
This Adoptee Life was built on, shaped around, and will always stay connected to my dream of offering fellow adoptees that same experience.
Share your adoptee story on This Adoptee Life Blog, or This Adoptee Life Podcast, and know that you have my support, as well as the support of a community of fellow adoptees, and non-adoptees who are here to listen and learn.

"It took love to build safety. It took courage to find confidence. It took looking within to meet my authentic self. And, now I am committed to helping others do the same."
Coming out of the fog (unpacking my own adoption) was by far the hardest thing I have ever done. It broke me to the core, and I had to let part of myself die off. I wasn’t ready for that, and at one point I didn’t see how I would ever be the same again…
And, today I smile from the heart, I feel safe and loved, by others, but more importantly by myself. I understand myself, my own emotions, and my emotions about my emotions, and I am able to not just push things away, but welcome it all. The good, the bad, and everything in between. Some days it’s easier than others, but the overall trajectory is moving upwards and forward, and I am grateful for the people who have been my mentors, my role models, and my support along the way. Because I have sat in the darkness, the brokenness, the anger, the pain, the desperation, and the fear, I want to bring hope and let you know that you are not alone. I see you. Let’s connect and work together, toward healing, safety, and confidence.
