Single mothers in South Korea

From the Korean Herald comes this story about single mothers in Korea. Some friends of mine are connected to the Miss Momma Mia's group discussed in the article.

"When I became an unwed mom, my family was the first to abandon me. But
they finally accepted me. And that support encouraged me a lot more
than anything else," she said.

Adding to the efforts of the unwed moms' association is the support
from Korean-born adoptees who recently returned home to help the
mothers who face the same difficulties as their birth mothers did
decades ago. They help promote the issue to the public as well as
educating and taking care of the kids of unwed mothers.
