More About This Event

Meggin Nam Holtz created this engaging movie, "Found in Korea" to catalyze conversations about adoption. The film explores search, culture, and multiple aspects of adoptive identity. Although it is based on a Korean adoptee's experiences, it is relevant to all families who have adopted and adult adoptees. This film is appropriate and meaningful for adoptive families with children ages ten and up. We recommend that families watch this movie together to stimulate discussion about adoption.

Date: Saturday, February 27, 2021

Time: 6:00 - 8:30 PM ET

Where: Virtually via Zoom

Fee: $65
