International Adoption Trends

When I began to study international adoption, it was during its heyday (2000-2009). During this time, I received federal grants to examine how families with children adopted from South Korea were addressing the transnational and transracial issues confronting the families. My work continues with international adoption but the focus has shifted toward adopted adolescents and adults who are now navigating these experiences on their own. Although there is a decline in annual international adoption, there are still many issues to address.
