A Korean author writes about her experience being adopted by white parents and raised in a small town in the Pacific Northwest and her decision to search for her birth family as an adult.

This was a moving story and Chung is very honest about the good and bad of her experience. Thankfully we have a greater understanding of the issues involved in cross-cultural adoption, and I think most people enter it more mindfully today. I also loved how she talked about the importance of the stories that we tell, and how the adoption narrative she was told shaped her understanding of herself.
