I Am, But I'm Not
Born as one, raised as another; Transracial adoptees have to navigate their multiple identities.
I Am, But I’m Not is about three women from the same orphanage in India who were raised separately by white Americans in the Western United States. Though they share common experiences, each of these Indian American adoptees choose a different way to grapple with the tug-of-war between their birth heritage and the culture in which they were raised. Their stories speak to the hundreds of thousands of adopted children struggling to understand who they are as transracial adoptees.
