Ask AF: My Child Said He Loves His Birth Mother More
#8220;Should We Tell Our Son #8217;s Teacher That He Was Adopted? #8221;
Three Stories: Unexpected Birth Family Reunions
A trio of remarkable stories from the first large group of Korean adoptees, now in their late 20's and early 30's. Thirty years ago, with international adoption information thought to be nonexistent and U.S. birth records sealed, few parents expected that their children would ever meet their birth families. Today, as more and more adoptees reach adulthood, they are finding birth relatives-or are being found by them. Whether a child is from the U.S., Guatemala, Russia, or China, she may one day be in touch with her first family. These stories, each detailing an unexpected family reunion, may well reflect the complexity of what is ahead.
