“This is a powerful and important read for all. The adoptee’s voice is all too often silenced, and it can literally be life or death for some to be heard and seen.”Amazon Review

About the Anthology:

This collection, compiled by Korean adoptees, serves as a tribute to transracially adopted people sent all over the world.  It has been hailed to be the first book to give Korean adoptees the opportunity to speak freely since the pioneering of intercountry adoption after the Korean war.
If you were adopted, you are not alone. These stories validate the experiences of all those who have been ridiculed or outright abused but have found the will to survive, thrive, and share their tale. Adopted people all over the world are reclaiming the right to truth and access to birth documents.  Be the first to read these narratives and join the ever-expanding Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Network. It’s never too late to walk in awareness!

Let’s #flipthescript What You Should Know

Adoption Books for Adults is a nine-book collection that touches upon adoption from several angles, using various genres, including, but not limited to, memoir, research, anthologies, political, investigative, and empowerment.
The curator of the collective, Janine Myung Ja, acknowledges some of the most important voices in the culture of adoption: families separated by adoption, such as from India, Ethiopia, Haiti, Romania, Korea, Australia, as well as deported adoptees and adoptees stigmatized as “anti-adoption.” These individuals have long been shamed and ousted from the political discussion for generations while adoptioneers have spoken for them.

Adoption Truth connects domestic, intercountry, and transracial adopted people while expanding and advancing the discussion to include biological relatives and long-lost family members. Known for being one of the largest adoptee-led groups available on FB, you will also find a bird’s eye view on the industry from diverse individuals. Fellow members typically post the latest articles on adoption from local and global areas.
