Received my match for the Adoption Blogger Interview Project.
I am matched with Kohana of Growing Family at http://growingfamily.typepad.com/.
I have not read much of her blog (yet) but will do so in the coming days. From what I gather she is an adoptive parent in a trans-racial adoption. She is also American and has a Dutch husband (I think?). She is currently living in Australia.
The match was perfect IMO (hooray Heather!) and timely. Having just returned from the St. Johns Conference on Race, Religion and Rescue in adoption I can certainly speak more intelligently to the topic of trans-racial adoption. Oh, I am still woefully ignorant (being a white mother who surrendered her first born white baby to a domestic closed adoption). I am looking forward to learning from Kohana.
For your reference, the project details are as follows:
- I need to swap interview questions with Kohana by November 4 (and she needs to swap with me).
- We need to respond to each other by November 9.
- We will post our interviews on November 14.
Soooo, check back here November 14 (or sooner if you want to read my St. Johns Conference Redux posts which will be coming soon!).
