The Choice to Search and Meanings of “Home”
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Voices of American Adoptees from China is a series of programs held throughout November 2019 in celebration of National Adoption Awareness Month. The series also commemorates the 40th year anniversary of the People’s Republic of China’s One-Child Policy.
In this installment of the series, join us for a panel discussion with adoptees from China on the decision to search for birth families and what it means to “come home.” Why do some adoptees choose to search and others do not? How can adoptees begin searching, and what is the likelihood of success under the Chinese government’s current scrutiny? What does “home” mean for transracial adoptees, and how does its fluid definition relate to other immigrant groups and the stories of Chinese in America? Hear from a range of perspectives on searching from three adoptees: Charlotte Cotter, who has searched and found her birth parents; Sophia Capri, who is beginning the process of searching; and Maya Delany, who has no interest in searching. Amanda Baden, an adoptee from Hong Kong and psychologist whose practice focuses on counseling transracial adoptees, will moderate.
