This sequel to The Colour of Difference examines the path of identity formation, openness within the adoptive family, and the long-term impact on intercountry adoptees. It highlights how open discussion and dialogue within an adoptive family — along with strong encouragement and facilitation to connect with culture — may assist an adoptee to grow up feeling well adjusted and with a healthy sense of self. Both these books are intending to give voice to the adoptee’s experience and offer insight to the adoptive community as a whole.
