A personal and powerful magazine made by Zoe Lowdermilk-Oppenheim, Coming Out of the Fog reflects on her own experience as a British woman who was adopted from China as a result of the one-child policy. Beginning with her own observations, Zoe develops the subject by interviewing a group of other adoptees, focusing on the identity dilemmas of trans-racial adoptees in general, and more specifically on the contradictions and challenges faced by British women who were given up at birth in China.

In this issue:


  • An intimate portrait of life after the one-child policy
  • Identity and trans-racial adoptees
  • Considering the role of birth parents, and the likelihood of finding them
  • The unreliable narratives surrounding adoptees’ infancy
  • And the struggle to accept the circumstances of birth, without being defined by it
