Gain Insights into the Experience of Adoptees from Vietnam
For insights into the experience of young adults who were adopted from Vietnam, visit the website of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute (http://www.adoptioninstitute.org/proed/vietprelim.html).
The site posts preliminary results of a survey of 88 adoptees born in Vietnam and currently residing in the United States. The results were originally presented by Joy Kim Lieberthal at the Reunion of First Generation of Vietnamese Adoptees, which took place in April 2000 in Baltimore.
Along with statistical descriptions, the presentation features many quotes from survey respondents about their life experience and their thoughts on adoption, identity, discrimination, and searching.
