I am interested to find out the thoughts and feelings of people have been adopted from overseas (including local adoptions where adoptees are from another cultural background). What do you feel could have made your adoption a more positive experience? If you feel that your adoption was a positive experience, what do you feel made it positive. Feedback from adoptees is particularly appreciated. Thank you. :)
My daughter is of Ethiopian heritage (I am Australian) and I am keen to learn from other peoples experiences. We are in contact with her birth family. She is almost five and we have been open in talking to her about her adoption, her birth mother and some basic details of her adoption story. We plan to be able to return to Ethiopia and meet her birth mother one day.
