Adoptee spotlight: Logan Bessara

Nanchang, Jiangxi, China --> Hawaii, United States

Hi, my name is Logan. I was adopted from Nanchang, Jiangxi, China when I was 10 months old.

Since then, I've been back to China to visit Jiangxi. There, I visited my finding spot. As a baby, I was left at and found on the staircase of a communication office building across from my orphanage. Today, the office building is no longer there, and it is an apartment building. My orphanage is also no longer there, and it's a market with different vendors.

"Because I was adopted by a Chinese family, I always had Chinese influences."

I currently live in Hawaii, where many of communities are of Asian descent. Because I was adopted by a Chinese family, I always had Chinese influences, therefore I've grown up celebrating Chinese traditions. I've also learned how to cook Chinese cuisine.

The photo is surrounded by abstract circles in various gray and pink colours. Under the photo, large teal text reads "Logan Bessara." Under that it says "Jiangxi, China."]
