In 2006 our family became a multiracial family through adoption—one born in Korea and two born in American. After attending parenting class and reading lots about multiracial families, we’ve come to understand how important it is to keep the birth culture alive for interracial adoptees. This blog is dedicated to multiracial families. We’ll share our journey and what we’re continually learning, discuss how adopting interracially changes your family, and often you personally, and share with you tips and resources that have helped our family. Many of the resources we’ll share will focus on Korea, because that’s what we know best, but lots of the ideas can be adapted to any multiracial family.

    I’m so delighted to have come upon your blog. Our son was born in Vietnam in 2002, and my family has definitely struggled with all sorts of cross-cultural, multiracial issues. I will list your blog on the blogroll for Adopt-a-tude (and would appreciate if you’d do the same for us). You might also like to check out my personal blog, Martha Nichols Online: http://marthanicholsonline.blogspot.com

    P.S. I was going to move Adopt-a-tude to the wordpress platform but decided to leave it be with blogger for the time being. I’m glad you navigated your way to us.

    Greetings Mom2One,

    I found your blog through Adopt-a-tude and could relate completely upon reading your post “Joy and Sadness — the Irony of Adoption.” I adopted my daughter in 2001 from China when she was a little under 18 mos. She is nine now, and a blessing and a joy. But she struggles with her losses and sometimes painfully so. I began a blog last spring keeping our names anonymous with the goal to protect my daughter’s privacy while also sharing our story in the hopes of helping and sharing with others. There’s a lot of romance around adoption but there is loss and there are hard, hard truths for our children to process.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

    Hello!
    I was delighted to find your blog, pleased to meet someone making such an effort to learn about their child’s culture. It’s especially generous of you to share that knowledge with others. But I’m sure all your work will benefit you and your family as well. Keep up the good work!
    I also wanted to let you know that I’ve written a book on the Korean culture that’s coming out in 2011. It called, “All About Korea, Stories, Songs, Crafts and More.” I have five children; my two youngest, who are now 18 and 12, were adopted from Korea.
    The book was a great project for my entire family. We all learned so much! Korean culture was the topic of dinnertime conversation almost every night, my 18 year old daughter helped me get the recipes just right and my son helped refine the book’s craft projects. We befriended many Koreans who were so helpful to me as I researched Korean culture.
    I’m going to post about your blog on my site. Check my website/blog out at http://www.annmartinbowler.net Let’s stay in touch!

    I was adopted from a German orphanage by an American couple, one of about 10,000 German children adopted by United States citizens during the Cold War. In this television interview, I describe international adoption from a unique perspective — that of a foreign orphan adopted to another country:

    I just created this video about international adoption. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJlnfkRtBX4
    You are welcome to share these videos.
