  1. I always get choked up when I see something about reunions.
    If there’s one thing I’d like to see change, it would be more methods to improve the chances of this for our children from a hope to a likelihood.

  2. Oh my gosh. I really started to cry! Those pictures at the end are what really got me.
    As a fellow adoptee, an experience like that seems so hard to “imagine” for myself. I wouldn’t have the faintest idea of how to go about a search.
    Ok, going to wipe my eyes and blow my nose now.

  3. Bawling to say the least! I wish every adoptee would have this oppotunity. I wish it was possible, it’s their right.

  4. I was shocked by the photos at the end… it looks like she was part of a stable, loving family in Korea for her first 2-3 years. How would a child in this situation have ended up being adopted overseas?!? And her brother was old enough to remember his darling baby sister… it made the airport scene at the beginning (where he was crying and hugging her) take on new meaning.
