This November, to recognize and honor National Adoption Awareness Month, I've invited adoptee poet Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello to curate a folio of poems by 10 Asian American adoptees. This page features “Girls” by Ansley Moon. I invite you to take a moment to read her moving introduction to the folio here, as well as the other nine poems in this collection.
