Judith Craig, BSW, RSW is a transracial, transnational, foundling adoptee from Haiti, adopted into a white Canadian family in the early 1980’s. Despite growing up in a loving family Judith always desired to know more about her roots and wanted to find her birth family. She returned to Haiti in 2007 and embarked on this incredible life-changing journey. She documented this experience in the film Adopted ID.
