Nisha Grayson identifies as an international, transracial adoptee from Goa, India. Preferred gender pronouns are she, her, hers.
The Adoptee Diary is a place for Nisha to share her critical thoughts and feelings around her personal adoption and the business of international adoption to the United States. After the making of YOU FOLLOW: a search for one’s past, Nisha continues to speak on panels at adoption conferences and volunteers as a support group facilitator. She was invited to write a book review for the PACT an Adoption Alliance Newsletter and a film review with the The Adoption Museum Project.
Through her personal and professional work around adoption and listening to her close adopted friends, she felt the need to have a space for resources for her fellow adoptees, first/ birth families, prospective adoptive parents, adoptive parents of children/adults, and for the general public’s social awareness around the international adoption industry. There’s no better group of people to teach about adoption than the adoption experts themselves, ADOPTEES! Nisha has collected a large list of articles, blogs, films, and more from the last year through her social media pages/private groups, conferences, scholars and friends.
She is always welcoming new updates so please share your ideas/artwork/resources via email
