Angela Tucker's Adoptee Manifesto comes to Italy - Il manifesto di un*adottiv*

When  we shared this awesome   post ,  it was November.  At last, the time has come:  The Italian Manifesto for all Italian Adoptees is here!

The journey was extremely fundamental to understand who I am, get in touch with my fragmented identity, make it tangible, free my roots from too much "Italianness", and rediscover their Indianness. Retracing the path, the places that - because of others and their haste brought me here, in Italy - I had to leave unknowingly, without saying goodbye.
