It's important to let others know that adoption can be a good thing.
I was born in Busan, South Korea.
At five months old, a family from the United States adopted me.
Prior to being adopted, I spent some time with foster moms who took great care of me. I still have photographs of them.
Growing up in the U.S. was interesting. As I recall, I had an amazing childhood with lots of unforgettable memories.
I was never mistreated.
I had multiple close circles of friends.
I attended school as if I were any other kid.
My life could not have been any better.
Despite having wonderful adoptive parents, I still wish I knew something about my birth parents.
Whether it was their names, similarities…anything.
To date, I have a lot of unanswered questions. A significant portion of my life remains a mystery. A mystery that I’ll hopefully solve one day.
For me, adoption is a journey.
A journey that gives me the confidence of accomplishing anything set in front of me.
