Korean adoptee, Jane Jeong Trenka, with whom some of you are already familiar, was interviewed by PBS regarding international adoption.
Check out her blog entry, "An example of an ethical international adoption and other things," in which she gives informed yet concise answers to the following questions:
- What are the most important things that parents who are adopting transracially and/or transnationally need to know and learn from adult adoptees?
- In brief, what facets about the current system of international adoption would you most like to see reformed?
- Do you believe that there is such a thing as an ethical international adoption?
- What advice would you have for people who want to believe that international adoption is mutually exclusive from global politics and the economic market?
Also, please take a moment to read through the comments section of Jane's post.
