My name is Olga Verbovaya. I am trying to learn about how you feel about your culture. If you would like, you can be in my study.

If you decide you want to be in the study, you will help other children and young adults in their journey of self and discovering their cultural identity. You will be asked to answer some questions about yourself and your experiences of being adopted. Should you feel uncomfortable answering any of the questions, you may stop at any time.
Other people will not know if you are in this study. I will put things I learn about you together with things I learn about other people who answer the questions, so no one can tell what things came from you. When I tell other people about my research, I will not use your name, so no one can tell who I am talking about.

If you are younger than 18 years old, your parents or guardian have to say it’s OK for you to be in the study. They will have to click on this link to let me know they are ok with you being in the study.

After they decide, you get to choose if you want to do it too. If you don’t want to be in the study, no one will be mad at you. If you want to be in the study now and change your mind later, that’s OK. You can stop at any time.
My telephone number is 405-326-2144.You can call me if you have questions about the study or if you decide you don’t want to be in the study any more.
By clicking “continue” you verify that you agree to be in the study and that your parents clicked on the link above and agreed that you participate (if you are younger than 18 years old).
