Cultural Identity and Place in Adult Korean-American Intercountry Adoptees.
Meier, Dani I.
Adoption Quarterly, v3 n1 p15-48 1999
Used semistructured interviews to explore the interrelationship between cultural identity and place in the lives of adult Korean adoptees. Found that most Korean adoptees followed a similar developmental trajectory of denial, self-awareness, and emerging cultural consciousness about their Korean heritage. Environmental factors such as travel to Korea mediated individual development. (Author/KB)
