Today's episode features Claire Skowron, the founder of and online platform called Adoptees of China, an online network for Chinese adoptees to see their stories represented and share their experiences with others. Her organization was created after she realized how little her story represented online. After starting it, she met so many other adoptees who also agreed that this was one of the first times they've seen their stories represented in media, and it truly motivated her to keep growing. We discuss her inspiration for starting Adoptees of China, why representation for adoptees is important, and the power of giving people a voice.
