Please visit Tara Vanderwoude website, www.taravanderwoude.com
Tara is a Korean adoptee and an adoptive mother, as well as a social worker, advocate, and educator. Her mission is simple, yet powerful in the quest for fostering an enhanced understanding of the complexities surrounding adoption: My writing attempts to give voice to these complexities -- they are plentiful, multi-leveled, and multi-dimensional. Like you, I'm still learning... and relearning. Effectively responding to the "best interests" of the child, regardless of whether adoption is the outcome begins with an open mind and willingness to regard different perspectives.
