331. White Shield Center, Portland

If you was a young pregnant teenager being referred to White Shield Center you knew that you was about to lose. The next generation in your family would never learn about you. Your child would be adopted to some strange family growing up never learning where they came from.

You would know that you had to carry a emotional wound for the rest of your life.

It was a place for grief. It was a place for loss.

It didn’t sound like a fun place to be as a teenager.

The organization continues to run a counseling service for young teenagers. It is currently under investigation by HEAL-online.

    I’m the founder and primary writer for The White Shield Project, I wanted to clarify that the focus of the Project is on collecting and preserving the stories of those whose lives were affected by The White Shield Center, with the long-term goal of creating a comprehensive, experience-based history. While I do offer a place for birth/adoption triad members to leave comments with the goal of finding family members, reunification is not the primary focus of the Project. Thank you.
