Meeting the Motherland series
The Lily, a product of The Washington Post for the curious minded and for those who want to be heard, is working on a forthcoming series that explores women’s journeys of visiting their motherland, or ancestral home, for the first time. These stories will address the questions: What is it like to visit the place you come from but know so little about? Does it feel like home? Can it ever feel like home?

We are seeking stories from first- and second-generation American women who feel disconnected from their parents’ or grandparents’ home countries. (For the purpose of this series, first-generation refers to the American-born children of immigrants and second-generation refers to the American-born grandchildren of immigrants.) If you have visited your motherland(s) sometime within the last 2-3 years, only to leave with more questions than answers, we would love to hear your story. Please fill out the form below and we'll be in touch soon.
