About the Book:
Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Marijane was adopted by an American military family at four months old. She grew up in a middle class neighborhood where hers was the only Asian face amongst a majority of white.
Raised to believe she was Vietnamese and Japanese, she never doubted what her adoptive parents told her, until one day, she found her lost adoption papers. This discovery unloosed secrets that had been buried for decades, causing her to question her own identity and origins. With brave determination, Marijane set out on a journey to reconstruct her past and resurrect a birth heritage that had long been forsaken. Her journey took her halfway across the world to eventually reunite with her birth family.
Beyond Two Worlds is a poignant telling of one woman’s quest for identity and belonging despite insurmountable odds, and will be of help to those seeking connection to their original families.
Coming Summer 2017!

Here’s a piece of art/expression by someone I don’t know here in Canada: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/pulling-at-threads-artist-explores-identity-after-adoption-1.4078367
Wonder if someone showcases art by international adoptees.
Wow I love the art! Very cool. It’s such a creative and powerful way of expressing feelings and emotions connected to adoption. Thanks so much for sharing, Jean.

Thank you, Betty! I’d really love to see you. I’ve thought about returning to LA for an author event, but am not sure I’d be able to swing it. We’ll see, and I’ll let you know should I come out! 🙂
