Harry Potter Was Adopted? And Tarzan, and Agnes of Despicable Me...


Contributed by Lisa Calcasola

This is Adoption Support and Awareness Alliance's LAST GENERAL BODY MEETING OF THE SEMESTER. This Thursday's meeting at 6 p.m. in Williams 218 will be about Adoption in the Media. If you haven't made a meeting, this will be the most entertaining one yet!

Media influences our daily lives, from commercials to advertisements to Netflix. How exactly is adoption portrayed in the media? Is there a right or wrong way to show adoption?

There are adoption stories everywhere, in the most common movies and shows you might not even think of. This Thursday we'll be watching popular movie and TV show clips all meeting long!! Harry Potter, Modern Family, and The Blind Side are just a few examples.


So come relax, watch your favorite shows, and de-stress before the semester's over. Only 11 more days people!!
