About Janine Myung Ja
International multi-award recipient and gold-medalist author, Rev. Dr. Janine Myung Ja, is an adoption researcher and rights-based activist in support of adult adoptees searching for families separated by adoption and parents of adoption loss. Janine has written and curated 12 books, numerous feature-length screenplays, and documentary scripts on the topic of international adoption. The collection she calls "Adoption Books for Adults" contains rare research, insights, and investigations into the industry of intercountry and domestic adoption, plus a deep dive and a bird's eye view on what has become a multi-million dollar global industry.
*Did you know that 100% of all adult adoptees in the United States and around the world surveyed in 2019 believed they should have access to their adoption documents and original birth certificates if they so wish? However, due to antiquated adoption laws developed and refined by pioneering evangelicals, adoptees--even into their elder years--are not permitted access to information that all other humans on earth are able to obtain for themselves. It's never too late to discover the shocking findings from Janine's investigational research in the rare collective called "Adoption Books for Adults".
Janine is a big believer in the idea that all humans hold unique and profound experiences from which to listen and learn. She and her twin sister are cofounders of Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Network, one of the largest adoptee-led groups on social media to discuss adoption from diverse perspectives that include domestic, late-discovery, transracial, and international adult adoptees. Janine is a proponent of international human rights agreements, including the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, and she is an advocate of Against Child Trafficking, which is rooted in the original implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
