Tales of Wonderlost

I'm a Korean-American adoptee living in Seoul, just finished my MA in Anthropology (yes, i took all of my classes in Korean TT). In my spare time, I volunteer at two great organizations: Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association (KUMFA) and the Women's Global Solidarity Action Network (WGSAN) - a group that works on various issues, including with the survivors of military sexual slavery during WWII ("Comfort Women"). I also love cooking and baking and going to the noraebang ^^ To make a monthly donation to the Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association, please click below!!
You can also make a one-time donation!

North Korean adoptions approved in US
The Telegraph (U.K.)

The US Congress has approved a bill which aims to make it possible for Americans to adopt orphaned North Korean children.

Yikes. :/

Oh god I wonder how many of those orphans are not actually orphans…..

some people have asked my opinion on this. i wrote about it before here.

main point: most of the children this law targets are NOT orphans. read: they have parents. this is the legal abduction of children made possible by the fact that their mothers are country-less defectors on the run - helpless to protest in china since they are there illegally. 

I can already hear the white saviors defending and condoning this bullshit. I feel fucking sick.

Who gives a fuck? Both of my hisband’s sisters were born in Korea (one north, one south) and they both turned out amazing. So again….who cares?

i was adopted from south korea, along with my twin sister, and we both turned out amazing. and i STILL give a fuck. the US and adoption agencies, and adoptive parents should NOT be taking advantage of the perilous situation of the mothers who are north korean defectors living illegally in china by swooping in and stealing their children.
