Who Am I? (Mar.2013 — )
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”— Aristotle
The Mothers’ Bridge of Love (MBL) promotes cultural awareness and understanding of Chinese culture among people who live in the Western world, and strives to aid the cultural connection between adoptive parents and children adopted from China, to help the children find their cultural roots and heritage, and to support projects that help disadvantaged children in China.
“Adoption” is not only limited to adopted children and their families – as humans we all adopt roles of mother, father, friend, son, daughter, traditions, cultures and religions. We adopt habits, thoughts, feelings, and ideas from all over the world, and from the environment in which we live.
To raise awareness, and show support, for adopted children and their families, MBL is launching a new project to gather inspiring stories from adoptees, as well as leading writers and creatives around the world, to share with us their journeys of self-discovery and identity-forming experience, by answering the self-reflective question of: “Who Am I?” (click the link for the background leaflet)
Through these stories sharing, may we grow and share together the many truths and wisdoms of humanity, and learn from each other’s experiences.
