I’ll have to respectfully disagree...

I usually enjoy Esther’s words but I’d have to disagree with Esther on this topic.

Particularly the part where she barely addresses the racial component to overseas adoptions. The parents raised her in a predominantly white household with white relatives and had her attend all white schools even though she is or Korean descent.

They say that they’ve only had the best intentions for her but they’ve never addressed her race or her cultural heritage and have instead taken race completely out of the equation even though their world sees her as other and not one of them.

No wonder this child could never approach them about being racially bullied. The disconnect and dissonance would make any child depressed.

Sadly, I feel like race is a blind spot in Esther’s work which I’ll have to take into account when I listen to her other works.

Excellent example of family dynamics

This is a great session on understanding family dynamics and how people cope with mental illness within a family. It's really a beautiful session recommend to everyone to listen to.
