Hello LGA Nation!
On August 9th, 2013, I announced the death of the Land of Gazillion Adoptees blog. Now, just a little over a year later, I’m pleased to say that this url, http://www.landofgazillionadoptees.com, is coming back!
The http://www.landofgazillionadoptees.com url will not only get a full makeover within the next six months, but it will be closely connected to the award winning online magazine Gazillion Voices and the website for the soon to be established nonprofit Gazillion Strong. I think it’s safe to say that the websites together will offer something to the adoption community that the community has never seen. Moreover, and more importantly, the websites will engage communities outside of adoption in a manner that is a long time coming. As other adoptees have been saying for years, adoption doesn’t exist in a vacuum. It exists at the intersection of race, culture, identity, performance, art, politics, history, and social movement.
When the LGA blog started, it set out to do its small part to demonstrate that it’s the adoptees time. Now, I believe that we have come to the moment in which we show the world that adoptees and those who share similar experiences, thoughts, and perspectives (such as members of the POC, immigrant, and LGBTQ communities) are poised to accomplish much, much more.
Get it excited!
