  1. Matthew,
    I am new to your work but am catching up on your columns. As an adoptive mother of a boy and a girl from Korea, I really appreciate your candor about your experience regarding your adoption, identity, and racism in the US. I will be recommending your work, especially to my son who has struggled mightily with adoption/identity and continues to do so.
    Best to you and your beautiful family…

  2. Thank you, Renee. Honored to have you and your son read my work.
