A Euro-American on a Korean Tour at a Thai Restaurant in China
When Euro-American parents adopt children from other countries their level of understanding of who they themselves are will be tested. Their capability in handling those obstacles that arise in their path will be an important part of the adoption experience for their children and for themselves. With each chapter examining issues that inter-ethnic adoptive families experience, the author weaves her own perspective on her adoption experience with perspectives related to her by her own children, adopted adults, other adoptive parents, birth parents, Koreans, Korean Americans, and Asian Americans. While the book’s focus is on experiences with Korean adoption, the experiences are transferable to inter-ethnic adoptions from any country.
