Today's Parent Magazine Covering International Adoption Issues

We're always looking for Korean Canadian adoption issues being covered in the media. That's why we've had to go back into the archives (and will continue to do so) to dig up some old articles. Back in July of 2005, one of our very own CKAN members was profiled in this piece about "Adoption Myths and Truths".

It's interesting to chart the development of adoptee advocacy. Well before protests and gatherings, advocacy started with adoptees telling their stories, often very personal and heartfelt histories. Without the courage of these adult adoptees stepping forward, many "myths" would still be circulating.

You can also take a look at the most recent KCCA Motherland Tour that took place in May 2007, on Today's Parent Caroline Connell's Korea Blog. The photos and posts sum up how amazing and powerful the experience was. If you look closely you might be able to find some more CKAN members there!
