Hello, and welcome to Beyond Two Worlds. My name is Marijane, and I’m a Taiwanese-American adoptee, MSW and board-certified music therapist.
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. After three years, however, I reunited with my birth family in Taipei. 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.
