The Digital Archive
This website was made to raise awareness on today's orphan crises and intercountry adoption.
It is a digital archive of Stephanie Flood's intercountry adoption documents and photos from the time she was living in an orphanage in the Philippines, circa 1985, before she was adopted.
Stephanie was born in the Philippines in 1985. Her birth name was Desiree Maru. In 1987, she was adopted into the United States and her name changed to the name she uses now, Stephanie Flood.
Stephanie or Miss Maru is a creative writer, mixed media artist, librarian & Filipino-American adoptee. On her free time, she blogs at Intercountry Adoptee Voices (ICAV) and loves visiting the ocean.
