Please share widely! Thank you!





















Drs. Amanda Baden and Adam Kim (both adult adoptees of color) are conducting a study on the experiences of transracially adopted individuals of color. The study investigates how adopted individuals explore birth culture. Further, we are interested in how birth cultural exploration may be related to identity exploration, experiences of discrimination, and well-being.

We hope that this research will help us present a more accurate picture of how adopted individuals navigate being an adopted person as an adult.

Please consider participating in the study if you are (1) a transracially, transnationally adopted person of color, (2) 18+ years of age, and (3) live in the U.S.
