Exciting lectures on identity, biracial families and homeland tours - book today!

New lecture series: Homland Trips and biologic roots

Together we make a journey into why adoptees want, need (and sometimes do not want and do not need) to return back to their homlands. Mary has met and interviewed 700 Swedish adoptive families and she uses their voices as well as her own experience as an adoptee when we go deeper the mental and practical process of returning to the homeland. Many questions and the answers are woven together in the entertaining and sometimes moving lecture.

Adoption - integration, identity and family ties

There are many emotions and thoughts during Mary's lecture when she tells us how it was to grow up as adopted child from India in a traditionally white Swedish society where genetic family ties always was rewarded. The recognition factor is high regardless if you are adopted, adoptive parent or an immigrant child or parent. Laughter mixes with tears, Mary leaves no one indifferent.
