Summary "Intercountry Adoptees Tell Their Stories reflects the thoughts and experiences of adult trans-racial adoptees. The authors conducted in-depth interviews in order to understand and examine the adoptees' attitudes toward identity, culture, race, and parenting within a multicultural household. The men and women interviewed in this study offer the readers a detailed and personal glimpse into their worlds. They represent a range of positive and negative adoption stories and describe the complexities of ethnic identity formation. Each experience related in this volume is unique not only in demographic characteristics, but in the journey that each participant has undertaken in his or her transition to adulthood and identity formation. What emerges from the interviews is a broad collection of voices speaking out from all corners of the country about their adoption."--BOOK JACKET.
