Portland Adoption Stories: Coats Family

Cat Coats, adopted from Korea, was raised in a loving home. At age 38, rather than searching for her birth family, they searched for and found her. In this artistic video, Cat shares her complicated emotions about adoption, including the joy of reunification and the troubles relating to her Korean culture.

Life has changed for Cat and her family. But she wouldn’t have it any other way.
