About Placed

It’s all a matter of context. The identities implied may overlap, or may not. It depends. The important thing is to create a space for those whose voices are often marginalized in conversations about us. To be placed is a passive use of a verb that objectifies the ones who experience placement (adoptees and fosters).

Placed is part of a broader effort to reclaim the voices of transracial and transnational adoptees and fosters in conversations about transracial and transnational adoption and foster care.

Incorporating the voices of transracial and transnational adoptees and fosters in its content, this site aims to highlight the unique experiences of those whose complex social locations allow them to see and experience life from spaces in between.
