Here is an article released today on the New York Times.

I will comment on  this later, as I am still gathering my thoughts and analysis on this piece. However my initial thoughts to this article are two things.

1) 2012. You’re having a laugh.

2) Common words used throughout: Embarrassment, shame, stigma, and disgrace. These words used to describe adoption are great indicators as to how we, the adoptees feel. It is no wonder that such ideals are passed on to us. I guess it starts at the top.


This is a real good article that I found on the Korean Times website about the resiliency of the Korean people. I read this article and I am just so proud of the nation who genes comprise my body. Maybe this is why despite all the dross I have been through I am still here today. I guess it’s just in my blood.
