I’ve often wondered about the differences in the portrayal of the “arrival home” of the adoptee, based on mediated works like Daughter from Da Nang and The Lost Princess (published by Reader’s Digest). There is a focus on the return of the adoptee to her country of birth as bringing out the entire clan or village. The mediation of arrival to the adoptive country is often quite the opposite, and this goes even further, when the extended adoptive family does not always express welcome, often in racially charged terms. Did this present itself at all as you were growing up? How did you negotiate it?
