We are approaching the one year anniversary of Hyunsu’s brutal death.

In Adoption, Agency Complaints, Asia, Excerpts by Adoptionland News

As we welcome the New Year and continue seeking justice for our baby brother Hyunsu, we also are approaching the one year anniversary of his brutal death. I have created this fundraiser page to purchase either a headstone for Hyunsu’s gravesite here in the US, or a memorial plaque to be placed in his memory in Korea, depending on what is the best possible closure we can work towards in his honor. The average cost of a headstone is $1,500.
Catholic Charities, Holt and MPAK have said and done nothing for this boy, not even a word of apology on his behalf since the admission by Brian O’Callahan of his guilty plea.  This is a way for the rest of us to show we care and Hyunsu was not forgotten and swept under the rug. Thank you for supporting this fundraiser in honor of a child that lost his life to a very cruel adoption.
