November is National Adoption month.
As an adoptee, this is a cause that’s very near and dear to my heart.
I was adopted, as an infant, from Korea when I was 5 months old. I’ve lived my entire life here in the US, as a citizen, and it’s not something that I take for granted.
So easily, I could have been an orphan on the streets in Seoul.
So easily, I could have lived a life in extreme poverty.
So easily, I could have lived a life as a completely different person.
Thankfully, my biological mother and father made the decision to give me a better life.
Thankfully, a case worker matched my file with my parents.
Thankfully, my parents said yes to my referral.
I live this amazing and blessed life.
Adoption is pretty fantastic.
