ADOPTION DIARIES EXPLORES THE OPEN ADOPTION PROCESS IN AN ALL NEW ORIGINAL SERIES ON WE TV

ADOPTION DIARIES PREMIERES WITH A ONE-HOUR SPECIAL ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 AT 10PM ET/PT

ADOPTING PARENTS AND BIRTH MOTHERS CREATE A NEW FAMILY, TOGETHER

PASADENA, CA, July 31, 2009 � WE tv's new original series ADOPTION DIARIES is a groundbreaking and emotional television program that documents the journey of birth mothers and adoptive parents as they create a new family, together. The future parents and birth moms featured have been matched with the help of Dr. Jennifer Bliss and the Independent Adoption Center, who specializes in �Open Adoption� wherein birth moms get to select the couple who will raise them and also have a guaranteed role in the future life of their child. ADOPTION DIARIES premieres on WE tv with a one-hour special event on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 at 10PM ET/PT, followed by three half-hour programs every Saturday at 10PM ET/PT.

The series aspires to help a wider audience understand the unique emotional experience of adoptive parents and birth mothers while alleviating misinformation, prejudices and misconception related to the process. ADOPTION DIARIES makes for a fascinating, introspective and enlightening television experience.

Each episode of ADOPTION DIARIES follows a different compelling story from the beginning stages, as a birth mother is faced with the daunting task of choosing her baby's future family. Viewers follow along as a couple is selected and hear their own unique story, many of which include years of roller coaster emotions surrounding their infertility, the decision to adopt and the overall process itself. Each set of adoptive parents works closely with Jennifer Bliss to develop what will be a lifelong relationship with the birth mother. Together they share in the experience of creating a family, from pregnancy through birth, and the child's future. Open adoption is a unique process, filled with overwhelming emotions as life is gifted from one mother to another, and families are brought together for the sake of a child's future.

For WE tv, the series Executive Producer is Kelly Hefner. THE LOCATOR is produced for WE tv by Asylum Entertainment.
