Must watch video

17 May

In South Korea, adoption has a stigma.  In a news article that I just read in the Korean Times, it said that 90% of babies born from unwed mothers result in her giving the child away.  S. Korea as a whole doesn’t support the parents and sadly, many mothers give up their babies when they really would rather not.  It’s heartbreaking, really.

This song was written and sang by a Korean adoptee.  I couldn’t stop the tears thinking about the thousands of children who grow up and wonder why things had to be the way they did.  The way they still are.  And I think of our future child’s mother.  And the heartbreaking decision she had to make carrying that baby full term and making the choice to give her up for adoption. 

Make it through the whole song.
