Hmm.. this should be interesting. I have three younger Korean adopted sisters. Though I won’t be able to attend the lecture I do hope I can find a transcript, video or audio recording of it.
If you would like to,see ONE positive story then go to TED and search for Rick,Smolan and his story of Natasha. It’s a few years old and he does say that his other stories on adoption were dishearting but once in awhile things seem to go right.
