Interviewees needed for study about birth family reunions
My name is Sara Docan-Morgan, and I am a Korean adoptee and an assistant professor of Communication Studies at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse.
I am conducting a research study that examines Korean adoptees’ reunions with their birth families. I am interested in adoptees’ communication (or lack thereof) with their adoptive families about these reunions, as well as the communication that takes place with birth families before, during, and after reunions. My overall goal is to better understand Korean adoptees’ birth family reunion experiences and the interactions that surround these reunions.
If you are a Korean adoptee 18 years or older and have reunited with your birth family, I would be honored to hear about your experience. I will be in the L.A. area the first two weeks of January and would be happy to set up an interview at a time and location convenient for you. Interviews will last approximately 30-75 minutes, depending on the amount you would like to share. I am also able to schedule phone interviews for those who would like to share their story but who are unable to meet the first two weeks of January.
If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 507-450-3561, or e-mail me at email@example.com.
