Did Adoption Agencies label 200,000 Korean infants and children as orphans in order to process them overseas for international adoption? Hundreds of Korean adoptees are requesting an investigation into their adoptions.
“We have reason to suspect that a lot of the information about us, at least the information we know, is incorrect,” said Peter Knudsen, who is one of 50 cosigners on an application filed to South Korea’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission last week to clarify their origins.
Dozens of Danish adoptees who were born in South Korea are demanding that the South Korean government come clean about their origins. They say adoption practices in the 1970s and ‘80s often included false claims about the circumstances of their births.
What are Korean Adult Adoptees Saying Today?
This collection, compiled by Korean adoptees, is a tribute to transracially adopted people sent worldwide. It has been hailed to be the first book to allow Korean adoptees the opportunity to speak freely since the pioneering of intercountry adoption after the Korean War. If you were adopted, you are not alone. These stories validate the experiences of all those who have been ridiculed or outright abused but have found the will to survive, thrive, and share their tale. Adopted people worldwide are reclaiming the right to truth and access to birth documents. This book is a living testament to why previous “orphans” do not endorse the profitable Evangelical Orphan Movement. Those who work in the human rights field, whistleblowers, or adopted, will see the value of this book. After years of forced “positivity” led by the profiteers, it is time to be real. These are real stories from individuals no longer serving the adoption pioneers’ fanciful wishes and advertising campaigns. Read this book before you pay adoption agency fees. These courageous narratives could save you tens of thousands of dollars or prevent you from obtaining a child unethically. Be the first to read these narratives and join the ever-expanding Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Information Network. It’s never too late to walk in awareness!
