I am writing to let you know about an opportunity to participate in a research study international adoptee’s experiences with birth country travel, relationships with other adoptees, and language fluency. This study is being
conducted by Heidi Brocious, a PhD student at the University of Utah. I am looking for participants who meet the following criteria:
• Born outside the U.S. and adopted by an American parent (or parents)
Being in the study will mean completing one online survey. The survey does not ask for specific identifying information, and all of your survey answers will be kept confidential.
If you complete the survey, you will be given an opportunity to provide your email address and be entered into a drawing for an iPad 2. If you are the selected winner, you will be contacted through this email address so the iPad can be sent to you. Email address will be separated from the survey data and destroyed following the completion of the drawing.
If you are interested in participating, you can access the survey at the following link:
