Adoptee Spotlight: Julia

Xiangyin, Hunan --> Spain

Hi, my name is Julia, and I was adopted in 2004, when I was a year old. I was raised in the Xiangyin county, SWI, in Hunan province, China, and have grown up in Spain. I'm an only child and feel lucky, since I've grown up in a town with many other adoptees and have been treated like a white person. However, this also scares me since I don't know how it will affect me if I move to bigger city.

"I've always been interested to learn about other people's adoption journey, specially the ones raised in the same orphanage as myself."

I've always been interested to learn about other people's adoption journey, specially the ones raised in the same orphanage as myself. Last year, I decided to start a roots search. In Spain, there aren't many resources, so I had to reach information from American people. That's one of the reasons why this year my friends and I decided to start an adoption account on Instagram called @unavision_diferente, which will be done in Spanish and English. With it, I want to change the vision that many people have about adoption and make a place where adoptees can feel comfortable talking about adoption.
