Our Community
hundred thousand Korean children have been adopted into the United
States. With their extended families, they form a Korean adoption
community of over two million.

KAAN’s Mission is:
to support networking and build understanding among aodptees, aodptive families, Koreans and Korean Americans.

What is KAAN?
KAAN is the Korean American Adoptee Adoptive Family Network.
Adoptees, adoptive parents and Korean Americans support KAAN, making it
a most inclusive organization. KAAN is a network which links
individuals and organizations across the United States, Canada, Korea,
and the world.

The Ninth Annual KAAN Conference will bring
members of the international Korean adoption community together in
Boston for a program that is designed to encourage increased awareness
of all of the issues that face our community today.

One thought

  1. Thanks so much for posting this. We live near Boston and I was not aware that this conference was coming. It looks like a lot of the sessions are appropriate for parents of transracially adopted children from Korea, as well as other countries.
