Welcome to the new KAD NEXUS blog. For those of you who have been around since the beginning, this blog started out as a personal journey for me. It was a space to analyze social inequality, to challenge oppression and to take a hard look at power structures. Through this lens I highlighted adoption resources while also combating negative stereotypes and portrayals of adoption in the media.
While the social justice identity of the old blog is still present, I also hope that this blog can serve as a platform to celebrate the rich and vibrant adoptee community and contributions that have arisen since I first started my personal journey here. I also hope that it can be a nexus for our own complex identities not only as adoptees but also in the broader national/international Asian/Korean Diaspora, and a place where we can support and celebrate other communities.
Join me weekly as I round up adoption in the news and headlines, discover new resources, connect with adoptee YouTubers, and uncover the contributions of adoptees in the art scene. Stay tuned for special guest blog contributors and if you’re looking for some new music check out Nexus Beats.
Thanks for stopping by and as always, feel free to drop me a line!
