Hello, and welcome to Beyond Two World. My name is Marijane, and I’m a Taiwanese-American adoptee, MSW and board-certified music therapist. I am an Adoption Social Worker at Olive Crest Foster and Adoption Agency. My background is in the field of child welfare ranging from foster care, adoption, mental health and trauma-informed care.
I created this blog in January 2010 when I first began searching for my birth family in Taipei, Taiwan. I had no idea how my search would go when I initially set out. Each day was a mystery, but my search ended in reunion nearly three years later. You can read about my adoption journey in my book, Beyond Two Worlds: A Taiwanese-American Adoptee’s Memoir & Search for Identity.” If you’re visiting for the first time, I recommend starting here then continue reading from oldest to newest post.
I’m thrilled that this blog has evolved into a platform for adoptees to connect and share information, resources and life experiences. All voices are welcome as long as they are respectful. To contact me, please go to the Contacts link located on the Home Page. Thanks for stopping by.
