Kirsta Bowman

Kirsta Bowman, a music teacher from New Orleans, Louisiana was adopted at birth and was raised in upstate New York. Kirsta has a unique perspective on adoption practices, both as an adult adoptee and as the child of an adoptive mother who started her own adoption agency, and her well-informed discussions about adoption on TikTok and Instagram reach a wide audience. On these platforms, she tackles difficult subjects with nuance and vulnerability, discussing everything from her own recent trip to Greece hoping to meet her birthfather to pointing out ethical issues in the adoption landscape, and the implications unethical practices have on adoptees.
