See what happens when two Korean adoptees, who once worked for adoption agencies, talk about all things adoption…
We here at Land of Gazillion Adoptees are certain adoption agencies would prefer that you didn’t listen to this podcast with Melanie Chung-Sherman, whom we featured earlier in the week. (And we’re not just saying that to bump up traffic.) Melanie covers a lot of ground in this lengthy conversation, including a discussion about some incredibly unpleasant realities of adoption, the skewed priorities of agencies, and concrete recommendations that would improve adoption as a practice.
Topics covered: parenting as adoptees, starting a practice/running a practice, lack of post placement resources, adoption agency funding priorities, adoption dissolutions/disruptions/”rehoming,” evangelical christian adoption movement, recommendations/future of adoption.
