Join us for this powerful film and discussion. We will be viewing the story of akaDAN, a musician and adoptee living in the US, who decides to search for his birth family in Korea. The short film discusses his feelings about the search, as well as the process of meeting his birth family, including the impact on his adoptive mother and his birth family (and a twin brother he did not know he had!). Adoption professionals in the film will contribute their thoughts about concepts such as the Primal Wound and other identity issues for adoptees.  

This event is open to all parents and caregivers, waiting and prospective parents, adult adoptees, professionals and students.

  • FREE FOR MEMBERS
  • 140HKD for non-members or lapsed members (or click here to join/renew your membership and attend this event for FREE).
