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.
