If I had been more organized, I would have spread the word on this earlier, but alas.. I'm so excited to say that I will be attending this year's KAAN Conference! KAAN stands for Korean American Adoptee Adoptive Family Network. This volunteer-run organization holds a conference every year in a different location. This year's destination is Atlanta, Georgia. I've never been to a KAAN conference or Georgia for that matter, so I'm thrilled! There will be movie screenings, activities and many sessions to attend during the event. I truly am sorry I didn't share about this earlier since the conference is this coming weekend. It seems like a marvelous opportunity and, best of all, seems like it will be representative of diverse perspectives within the community. A friend and I ended up registering very last-minute and I'm just so glad to be going. If you would like to know more, please visit their website: http://www.kaanet.com
And if you're reading this and happen to be attending, drop me an email (chopsticksoo(at)yahoo.com--sorry for no hyperlink, but I'm trying to avoid spam)! I'm looking forward to meeting new people and making the most of this experience.
