After the Morning Calm: Reflections of Korean Adoptees
This book tells compelling stories of how 27 adult adopted Koreans who grew up in the U.S. and Europe have dealt with various issues in their lives.
How did they overcome some of their adversities in life? What helped them integrate their racial and cultural identities into their self-image? Did they want to visit Korea? What was it like to be in Korea? How did they go about searching for birth parents? What have they given back to their communities?
By telling their stories, we want to affirm and validate the challenges adopted Koreans face because of the very nature of cross-cultural and trans-racial aspects of their lives.
We are honored and privileged to present the contributors who so generously share their life experiences, wisdom, pain and joy.
