In contrast to Monday’s MPR program on the decline of international adoption that was comprised entirely of non-adoptees (see my previous post on this topic), today’s MPR panel, brought about by vocal and articulate adoptees criticizing MPR’s choice of panelists, is comprised entirely of adoptees:
- Kim Park Nelson: Associate professor of American multicutlural studies at Minnesota State University at Moorhead
- JaeRan Kim: Stability, permanency and adoption coordinator at the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare at the University of Minnesota
- Kelly Fern: Author of ‘Songs of My Families’
My only criticism is this: Tom Weber focused the conversation on race and racism for 40 minutes. JaeRan Kim, Kim Park Nelson and Kelly Fern totally rocked it with their answers to his questions, but why didn’t he ask them on their thoughts about the decline of international adoption?
