Korean Adoption

Posted on: July 7, 2011

After the Korean War many international organizations developed a systematic adoption process for Korean children.  As a result over 150,000 children have been adopted mostly by American families.  Several years ago, a television show was dedicated to reuniting these adoptees with their lost parents.  The show is still on and every time I see it I have to change the channel.  The adoptees always seem to have this sadness in their eyes and the speak from a generic script aka “I don’t hate you”, “I lived a good life” etc etc.
