Adoptees on NPR: NAAM

This is for day 20 of National Adoption Awareness Month, so this is my daily post to amplify the voices of adoptees, and posted on day 22.

Three transracial adoptees were interviewed by Audie Cornish of NPR on November 16, sharing how hard it can be for them to be heard about issues of race and social justice

Sunny Reid is a Korean adoptee raised in New Jersey. Hannah Jackson Matthews is a Black biracial woman living in New Jersey. Annie Stefanko is a Guatemalan adoptee, raised in Minnesota. It is a brief interview, and I was glad to hear their voices. All too often, National Adoption Month and NPR (and other media outlets) have focused only on adoptive parents.

You can hear and read the interview here.
