So here it be! What you’ve all been waiting for – the Land of Gazillion Adoptees podcast conversation with Tom DiFilipo of Joint Council on International Children’s Services (JCICS). Woo-hoo!
Now, setting all excitement aside, I’m certain some of you will be disappointed in the tone (civil), that I didn’t ask certain questions, that I didn’t pounce when I had the opportunity, etc. That’s fine. Bring on the critique. We’re absolutely open to them here. But come on. What good does it do if folks like Tom and adoptees like yours truly yell at each other all of the time (there is a time and place for that, though)? Besides, we here at Land of Gazillion Adoptees are always thinking about the long road; there will be future conversations.
Enjoy Round 1.
Topics covered: JCICS, JCICS symposium, adoptee/JCICS relations, adoptee tokenism at the JCICS symposium, JCICS membership’s ongoing responsibilities to the adoptee community, adoptee deportation.
