Director: Barb Lee,
Synopsis: Of the 1.5 million adopted children in the United States, international adoptees are the fastest growing segment - and most adopted are Asian girls. While many of their stories are heartwarming and play into our self-image of American compassion and generosity, the realities are much more complex. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, adoptees have significantly more behavioral problems than non-adopted children. 'Adopted' reveals the grit rather than the glamor of trans-racial adoption. First-time director, Barb Lee, goes deep into the intimate lives of two well-meaning families and shows us the subtle challenges they face. One family is just beginning the process of adopting a baby from China and is filled with hope and possibility. The other family's adopted Korean daughter is now 32 years old. Prompted by her adoptive mother's terminal illness, she tries to create the bond they never had. The results are riveting, unpredictable and telling. While the two ... Written by Point Made Films

Critic Reviews

This is a great film that explores with depth and honesty the gripping story of two adoptive families at opposite ends of the adoption experience: one set of parents in the process of meeting their adopted baby, the other facing terminal illness and trying to leave their adult adopted daughter, Jen Fero, with dignity and love by discussing some of the issues that have been unspoken within their family. We come to care deeply about Jen and see her as a hero, a very articulate hero, who helps us understand, once again, the complexity of adoption.

Adopted is distributed as a two-DVD set with We Can Do Better, a companion film designed for training purposes. We Can Do Better intersperses the firsthand experiences of parents and adopted adults with child welfare professionals talking about some of the challenges inherent to transracial and transnational adoption. Each of the five sections is between 20 and 35 minutes long, and conveniently divided into topics for trainers and parents.

In the spirit of full disclosure, we should point out that Pact Director Beth Hall and Lisa Marie Rollins, Pact's former Adoption Education Specialist and Pact Point of View Editor, appear as speakers in We Can Do Better. We admit our bias, but we really believe this two-part video is a valuable and important contribution to the field. It's not always easy viewing, but it's an honest and poignant look at the many layers of adoption, and the ways that we can do better to serve adopted children.
