I wouldn't know where to begin looking for my parents. I was found abandoned on the streets by some nuns in the middle of winter and taken in to Star of the Sea Orphanage. There is absolutely no record of my birth and my parents left no papers on me.
That would be so cool to have a Star of the Sea Orphanage reunion.
How old were you when you left in 1966 that you remember me?
I finally was adopted in October 1970.
I am married and have 5 children. They are 19, 17, 14, 9, and almost 8. I had them all c-section. 2 of them were over 8lbs, 2 were 7lbs, and only one was 6lbs. They were all nice and healthy.
I am a paraprofessional (special education aid) but I am currently working on getting a teacher degree. By the end of December I will hopefully have accomplished that.
Do you have any memories of the orphanage? I do. I also remember going to Seoul at Korea Social Service and waiting there till I went to America, approximately one week later.
That was quite the experience I will not forget.
It is so awesome to hear back.
