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. Theres no better group of people to teach a out adoptions than the 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
