Forum - January 20, 2017 - Katelyn Hemmeke

This project collects and examines adoptee oral histories, consciously privileging the voices of adoptees in an adoption discourse that tends to silence them.

In these oral histories, adoptees relate their personal experiences with the twists and turns of the birth family search process, their motivations for searching, and (for those who have reunited) the many ups and downs of birth family reunion.
