1. Chinese Adoptee at NYU Seeking Adoptees to Complete Research Survey on Identity

Hi y'all! My name is Julia Santoro and I'm a Chinese transracial adoptee from Boston. I'm conducting a research project for one of my classes at NYU about how Chinese transracial adoptees living in America make sense of their identity at different points in time.

I was wondering if y'all would be willing to complete an anonymous survey for the project.
Here's the link to the survey: https://goo.gl/forms/Osas6mRaILlE210e2
It should take about 10 minutes to complete.

If you could also share this with any other Chinese transracial adoptees that you know, I would really appreciate it! Thanks so much in advance!!

3. Adoptee from UNC Seeking Adoptee / Parent or Guardian Participation in Adoption Video 

~~WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN AN ADOPTION VIDEO?~~

Hello! My name is Liana and I am an adoptee from China. I'm currently a junior at UNC and the adoption club at my school is putting together an adoptee/parent and guardian video montage to celebrate adoptees and their families! 
We think this comes at a great time, especially considering this is National Adoption month!

If you're interested in sending in a short video clip of you and/or your parents answering some thought-provoking questions, that clip will be used in the montage and shared upon completion!

We are really excited about this project and hope anyone and everyone gets involved with it to make it the best it can be.

Information for it can be found here: https://goo.gl/CNjmy8
and please fill out this form https://goo.gl/z1xsdf to express your interest!
And of course, if there are any further questions, don't hesitate to reach out! 

Thanks!
Liana and AdoptEd exec

4. Chinese adoptees write “Open letter to Chinese birth parents” and “Open letter to top leaders of china”

Please read the attached letters: "Open Letter to Chinese Birth Parents" and "Open Letter to Top Leaders of China." These heartfelt letters were written by adoptees Cassidy Sack and Joey Beyer, who are working with scholars from the UCA (https://ucausa.org/), to bring awareness to birth parents that adoptees desire connection with their Chinese families, and to request support from the top leaders of China. The letter to the Chinese government will hopefully be shared at the Chinese People’s Congress annual meeting in March of 2019. Please show your support by signing the final Google Document form. Thank you. Feel free to message or comment if you have any questions or concerns.
