Description Contents
Have you been thinking about who your biological relatives are? You are not alone. According to an article published by the Korean newspaper, Korea Herald in 1999, about 2000 KADs (Korean Adoptees) visit Korea each year in search of their national, cultural, ethnic, or biological heritage.

Searching for biological family is an emotional journey which involves both internal and external issues. While some KADs have a stronger need or desire to search than others, we all have our own personal reasons for the choices we make. There are no right or wrong choices; every individual must make his or her decision about whether to embark upon a search.

Not all KADs have a need or a desire to find out more about who their birth-parents are, but if you feel the need to start this journey we hope the following information will be helpful. We have collected some advice on how to conduct a search, who to contact, available options, and personal stories of other people who, in one way or another, have been involved in birth family search or the issues surrounding this.

This handy, pocket-sized collection of search advice, addresses and contact information contains everything needed by adoptees that are starting to search for biological family in Korea. Compiled entirely by adult Korean adoptees, this multilingual resource book should have a place in the bookshelves of Korean adoptees and adoptive parents alike.
