Leah Outten

Leah is a birth mother of 19+ years in a fully open adoption and a mother of 5 that she parents with her husband. She has been writing, speaking, and serving the adoption community since 2004. Her passion for helping others blooms from the light found within the dark trenches of her life, and the support surrounding her. Sharing vulnerably about the beauty and aches as a birth mother, she aims to inspire hope and show how open adoption can be done well. Leah's writing and story have been featured on national platforms including Focus On The Family, Epoch Times, and HuffPost. Her memoir, The Sixteenth Year, will be available soon.
