What would you do if you found out at age 45 that you were adopted? If you found yourself pregnant and alone at age 19? What if being a dad had been a dream of yours since childhood, but circumstances prevented it? What happens when adoptees meet birth parents? “Chosen: Stories on Adoption” features 23 monologues about adoption, sensitively told from the perspectives of adoptees, birth parents, adoptive parents, foster families, and more.

There might be a couple of monologues that may be over the heads of the children. They may remain unused.
