Overlooked Asian Americans: The Diaspora of Chinese Adoptees

備受忽視的亞裔美國人:離散的中國籍受領養者

Richard M. LEE

Abstract

Building upon the review article by Hoshmand, Gere, and Wong (2006, this issue), this discussion article addresses the unique historical and racial experiences of Chinese children adopted internationally into predominantly White families in the United States. Using a diaspora framework and an Asian Americanist perspective, a few developmental and clinical issues are highlighted in the ways in which Chinese adoptees and families negotiate the racial and ethnic realities of transracial and transnational adoption.

摘要

基於Hoshmand, Gere, & Wong(2006,本刊)的評論文章,本文探討在美國主要受白人家庭領養的中國籍兒童的獨特歷史及種族經驗。本文根據離散框架及亞裔美國人的觀點,指出了領養家庭與中國籍受領養者在面對跨種族、跨國藉的領養時,所遇到有關種族與族群現實的衝擊。
