about

I’m a transracial adoptee living in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. I had the misfortune of being raised in one of the whitest communities in the state, thus breaking any stereotypes of New Jersey being a dirty, citified (i.e., diverse) armpit of the country.

Here you’ll find gritty realities about transracial adoption, mixed with actual, legit, for-realsies scholarly research to help validate all you angry adoptees out there. For those of you who lean more lovingly toward the adoption experience, I hope you’ll find some takeaways to help broaden your perspectives and contribute to a meaningful discussion.

My goal is to widen the discussion about adoption into a more relatable one by framing it with racial studies.  I’m currently at work on an autoethnography, detailing my experiences and bolstering it with that aforementioned for-realsies academic research (you know, the kind that goes beyond a Google search).

About my credentials: Not much, besides being adopted into a white family and race-unfriendly county (just wait until you read about the Confederate flag incident). I have a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science, which I’m utilizing in full force to cull research and make recommendations.

Professionally, I have a background in digital marketing with a focus on Google Analytics.

Personally, I just want to make a change in how race in this country is perceived.

I am a contributor to Intercountry Adoptee Voices.
