#FLIPTHESCRIPT allows adoptees to have their voices heard

For those who have been adopted, a new social media movement called "Flip the Script" has been enabling adult adoptees to have their voices heard.

Joy Lieberthal Rho, an adoptee herself who has worked in the field of adoption for 15 years, joined us to talk about "Flip the Script." It's a platform that gives adoptees a chance to have their voices heard. They share stories about their adopted families who they love deeply and those who had horrible experiences and who have survived..

#Flipthescript is a Twitter hash-tag movement and YouTube video headed by Rosita Gonzalez at the
adoptee-centric collaborative writing group, Lost Daughters.

The movement's phase “Flip the Script” originated with Amanda Transue-Woolston in a video trailer for a book called “Dear wonderful you: letters to adopted and fostered youth.” Amanda also started a
website called It provides a forum for adult female adoptees.
