Hello, and welcome to Musings of a Taiwanese American Adoptee. I’m a Taiwanese adoptee, and my favorite things are writing, music, singing, drawing, dancing, animals, and coffee.
I created this blog in January 2010 after setting out to find my birthfamily in Taipei, Taiwan. I never imagined searching for my birthfamily until a single, significant event occurred that disrupted the course of my life. After three years of searching with the support of a Taiwanese social worker, who was truly my sole support, I reunited with my first family in Taipei during the Lunar New Year of 2012. If you’d like to read about my adoption story, please check out my book, Beyond Two Worlds: A Taiwanese-American Adoptee’s Memoir & Search for Identity. If you’re visiting for the first time, I recommend starting here then continue reading from oldest to newest post (February 2010-present).
I’m thrilled that this blog has evolved into a platform for all members of the adoption constellation to connect and share information, resources, and life experiences. I welcome your thoughts and comments. To contact me, please go to the Contacts link at the top of this page or click here. Thanks for stopping by.
