Local Korean adoptee reunited with birth mother after 37 years

I can't help it. Everytime I see a reunion story it makes me cry. That this story involves someone from my own community (I'm not friends with Mr. Huston but I am friends of friends – in my state there's about a 2-degree of separation with Korean adoptees) makes it even more interesting to me.
Local Korean adoptee reunited with birth mother after 37 years

search for his birth mother took a Minnesota man more than 6,000 miles
away from home to Korea, where he was given up for adoption 37 years

Jon Huston never imagined he'd find his way back to Korea.

"I was very nervous. I didn't know what was going to happen. It was
the most nerve wrecking thing, to know if I would be accepted or
rejected," said Huston.

  1. I always bawl… So hard to watch and I can never watch all the way through. I’m also curious about the biracial factor… as well as his birth father’s family in the states and all the other layers in his story.
    I am so glad for both of them… and that his birth mother was able to see him, as she said, before she died.
