One of our favorite movies here at American Adoptions is Closure, a documentary that follows transracial adoptee Angela Tucker as she sets out to find her birth mother. Angela’s story brings to light many important issues in adoption, and addresses them from a lesser heard perspective: the adoptee’s.
To continue to shed light on the adoptee perspective, Angela and her husband, filmmaker Bryan Tucker, have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their newest project, The Adopted Life Episodes.
The Adopted Life Episodes is a new series that will be hosted by Angela, who will sit down to speak one-on-one with transracially adopted youth to bring awareness to some of the complex issues adoptees face, from birth parent relationships to racial identity to forming friendships and a sense of belonging.
Bryan and Angela are more than halfway to their goal, but they need your support before their campaign ends on November 30.
Donations to the Kickstarter campaign will allow Bryan and Angela to create the first three episodes of The Adopted Life, which will allow viewers the rare opportunity to gain first-hand perspective from adoptees and let other young transracial adoptees know they are not alone.
Watch the trailer for Closure below to learn more about Angela and her story, and make a pledge to support The Adopted Life Episodes campaign before the end of National Adoption Month on November 30.
