A quick plug for a new list-serv for my fellow Southeast Asian adoptees out there:
Adult Adoptees of Southeast Asia (AASEA) is a listserv for adult adoptees from Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
These countries share much in the way of culture and history. Many of today’s Southeast Asian adult adoptees were adopted as a direct result of war and poverty.
This is a listserv run by and for adult adoptees. International adoption is increasingly becoming the preferred choice for many wishing to expand their families. It is our wish that AASEA will provide a safe space for adult adoptees from Southeast Asia to connect with one another and discuss openly and honestly their adoption experiences and concerns.
Thanks to the organizers who've set this up.
