“I Wonder…” Teenagers Talk About Being Adopted

In this DVD you will meet fourteen teenagers who were interviewed by Vera Fahlberg, MD, an internationally known author, consultant, trainer and therapist whose work has focused on the needs of children placed outside of their family of birth. The “experts” in the video are a diverse group of young people between the ages of thirteen and twenty who were adopted at various ages and with a wide variety of personal circumstances. They generously volunteered to share their thoughts about adoption so that other families and professionals could learn more about the impact of adoption on the lives of children and teenagers.

The participants were not aware of the questions they would be asked before the videotaping session, nor were their answers rehearsed in any way. The taping was done in two groups (younger and older teens) with Dr. Vera Fahlberg. No parents were present. The feelings and ideas contained in the video therefore represent the real language, thoughts and reactions of a representative group of young adopted people.

The price includes shipping, with the option to ship to a US domestic address or to an international address. To order through Paypal:
