      Korean adoptees panel

      The first in a series of presentations on adoption will feature deaf
      and hearing adoptees from Korea who will share their experiences of
      being adopted into a family from a different culture than their
      culture of birth.

      PANELISTS: Noel King, Joseph Lewis, and Liz Stevens

      Saturday, April 23, 1-4 p.m., Merrill Learning Center, Rm. B111.

      The panelists will discuss the experience of being adopted, adjusting
      to a new life, dealing with adoptive parents’ expectations,
      questioning identity, searching for birth parents (or not), and
      finding oneself. There will be time for Q & A afterward.

      There will also be a staged reading of The Perfect Family Template, by
      Monique Holt.

      Admission: FREE

      Sponsored by the Gallaudet Department of Social Work
