Want to know why so many adoptees no longer tolerate the business of adoption?
Want to know why so many adoptees no longer tolerate the business of adoption? Wonder why so many adoptees disapprove of the practice and have banded together to fight for their rights to blood-family and adoption documents?
The truth of adoption is finally unveiled here and presented with private and personal accounts. At last, after sixties years of adoption profiteering, these narratives paint a true portrait of adoption–from the back door–by those most affected.
This collection, compiled by Korean adoptees, serves as a tribute to transracially adopted people sent all over the world. It has been hailed to be the first book to give 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 everyone who have been ridiculed or outright abused but have found the will to survive, thrive and share their tale.
Adopted people all over the world are reclaiming the right to truth and access to birth documents.
This book is meant to educate the public on human rights violations. It is also a living testament on why previous “orphans” do not endorse the Evangelical Orphan Movement.
Those who work in the human rights field, whistleblowers, or adopted, will see the value of this book. Caution: Those who insist on adoring the industry and want to continue to profit from the child market will not comprehend the full value of this book. They would do better to read an adoption fiction or fantasy book written for children by an adoptive parent.
The adoptee-rights community refuses to advertise for adoption facilitators. We also refuse to promote the commercialization of children, nor do we profit from the industry. The insistence that adopted people ignore their human rights and stay “positive” dismisses the crimes against families and children, and has resulted in the continuation of profits over people. Because few have heard the voices of adoptees from Asia, Africa is now targeted and hailed as the next best harvesting grounds.
After years of forced “positivity” led by the profiteers, it is time to be real. These are real stories from real adopted people–no longer serving the adoption pioneers’ fanciful wishes and advertising campaigns.

Adopted. Abused. 5 Foster homes. Wrongly Accused. And Deported:
Hello, my American name is Monte Haines, and my Korean name is Han Ho Kyu. At age eight, I arrived in Iowa almost 6500 miles from Seoul, South Korea. I was scared and had no idea where I was.
I was given a small room to sleep in, and all went pretty well for the next couple of months, despite the language barrier. Then it started: the physical, mental and sexual abuses. This went on for about six months to a year. My adoptive father used to hit me if I didn’t do what he wanted. I attended school with black and blue bruises on my arms and my back. If anyone asked what had happened, I claimed I had fallen down the stairs to protect my adoptive father from getting into trouble.
