Korean Adoptee Reunites With Her Birth Mother

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman January 20, 2015

After searching and searching for seven years, this Korean adoptee finally finds her birth mother and plans a much-anticipated trip to reunite. Growing up “different” and not really feeling like she fit in with any culture, the prospect of reuniting in a foreign country was scary.

But the reunification was tender for both mother and daughter. Maintaining a relationship at such a distance, and having lived different cultures and having different languages, the drive is still there. This lovely Korean adoptee has mixed feelings, now, about international adoption.
