adoption consultant for upcoming documentary

Katie Jae Naftzger, LICSW with Jennie and Maya

There is something about documentaries that gets us every time.  It has to do with recording one’s narrative, one’s journey in a way that wasn’t possible in the beginning of our lives, as adoptees.  Your narrative was important then and will always be important now.

As the adoption consultant in a documentary following two Chinese-adopted girls as they visit their birth country and get immersed in their culture.  The China trip will happen in late July, in a few short weeks.

I applaud “Somewhere Between” for paving the road for documentaries like these and I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of it, as an adoption consultant.  These girls are amazing, and incredibly bright, articulate and ready to immerse themselves in the Chinese community, for three weeks.  I can’t wait to talk with them when they get back.
