Someone just posted about this new documentary on one of the adoption lists. It follows a 32-year-old Korean adoptee as she tries to connect with her adoptive family. One of the quotes from her is something like "the most dangerous thing I've ever done is raise the issue of my adoption with my family." Wow. The film also follows a family's wait to adopt from China. The DVD isn't available for sale yet, it seems. But it looks really informative and thought-provoking. I can't wait to see it!

Be sure to check out the Learn More section. There are great videos about racism, Asian-American stereotypes, being Chinese in America, transracial adoption. . . . Just really great stuff! Here's a really thought-provoking one:
