Adopted from Sri Lanka at the age of 4 years old, Chamila talks about the lifelong impacts of abuse in adoption.

We recognise that the adoption experience and associated traumas can be difficult to talk about. Watching these videos may bring up strong feelings for some people. We encourage you to talk to your support network and seek help from services that are available to you, including the Intercountry Adoptee and Family Support Service (ICAFSS)Lifeline, and any of our recommended global post adoption support services.
