Implications of Transnational Adoption Status for Adult Korean Adoptees
Langrehr, Kimberly J.; Yoon, Eunju; Hacker, Jason; Caudill, Kathy
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v43 n1 p6-24 Jan 2015
This study used a consensual qualitative research method to explore the implications of transnational adoption in the lives of 12 adult Korean adoptees. From the analysis, 6 domains emerged: (a) adoption history and preadoptive memories, (b) meaning of adoption, (c) adoptive family dynamics, (d) racism, (e) identity formation, and (f) counseling experiences. Results highlight the need for more awareness surrounding transnational adoption throughout the life span. Additional suggestions concerning research and practice are discussed.
