Shaaren Pine is a transracial adoptee from India. She was brought to the US in 1975 at the age of 4 months. She grew up in Groton, MA, went to school at Earlham College, and has spent the last decade in restaurant management. In the last few years she’s become a writer and adoptee activist - you can find some of her work on Masala Mommas, Upworthy, and The Washington Post.  She is a member of Lost Sarees, Adoption Links, DC, and the Adoptee Rights Campaign.  When she’s not advocating for adoptee rights or writing about adoptee experience, she can be found running, crafting, or gardening. She lives in DC with her daughter, husband, and three cats.  You can connect with her via email ( or on Twitter (@shaaren).
