Contributor of The “Unknown” Culture Club: Korean Adoptees, Then and Now, Monte was born in 1970 in South Korea and was sent for adoption to a family in Iowa in 1978 through Holt International on an IR-4 visa. His adoption was never finalized, and then Monte was again relinquished. He bounced around between several foster homes before he was legally adopted by his parents in 1981. In 2009, he was deported to South Korea, a country where he had no familiarity with the language or culture.
