The word ‘home’ can spark a complex series of emotions. For some, nurture, joy, and a profound sense of belonging. For others, rejection, pain, harm, abuse, and abandonment. Homecoming does not always signify going back to a home but sometimes the act of finding a new one; the one that was intended; the revelation that the one that was meant to be isn’t always the one that was given: family. Homecoming is the community we construct, sometimes it’s chosen family, sometimes if we are lucky, its our own, it can even take place within our ethnic community and identity.
