Free Hour: 12:15PM – 1:30PM

Two Korean adoptees and a parent will comprise a panel on the issue of Korean adoptee experiences. The American parent panelist is a Queens College staff member, Stuart J Schaffer, who has adopted a Korean child. Korean adoptees numbering around 120,000 comprise the largest adoptee group in the US (between the 1960s and 1980s). Adjustment and identity-formation difficulties, as well as racial discrimination encountered by these children will be addressed.
