Passing down culture is an important part of parenting. But how do you do this when your child’s culture is not your own, and you have only ever experienced it as a tourist? Mother Country looks at intercultural adoption through the lives of Australian families who have adopted children from other cultures. Parents and children with Korean, Ethiopian, Colombian, Cambodian and Cook Islands heritage share their thoughts on the complexities of intercultural adoption, and how they help their kids understand their birth culture.

In the spirit of reconciliation we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters, and communities.
We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders - past, present, and emerging.
Sovereignty was never ceded.
