LoveLee Adoptee: #2

First of all, I just want to clarify that I love my American/Adopted parents very much. I know where I came from and for me personally...I have two sets of parents. Biologically and Adopted ones. Right now, I only claim one set of parents. They are my adoptive parents. I dont even include the word adopted. My parents are my parents. They have raised me to the person I am today. Even though I am not their blood...they have treated me like I am their own for the last 25 years. But for the purpose of not confusing the two set of parents...I will clarify them as biological oradopted  in the LoveLee Adoptee. 

If you all didn't know, I was adopted. I was 6 years old when my American Parents picked me up from Ontario Airport September 28, 1988.  I was escorted by my Korean -English Speaking translator that looked exactly like my biological father. I remember when I first met him, I said "Dad?". Can you imagine yourself knowing that your dad is gone and all of a sudden you meet his twin or doppelganger? I will tell you more about him later on in future posts.

I was born in Chollabuk-do, South Korea in a house, not at a hospital. My Biological Mother was helped by a midwife. I was told that, it was very common those days to give birth at home. (Especially where I was from...around SouthWest of Seoul, South Korea)

*I tried to Google the city chollabuk-do, South Korea. but its been changed into a different name and region so I couldn't tell you more than you probably would know yourself. *

I couldn't tell you about the Country that I was born in, let alone know to speak any lick of language.  I know what I remember from my past and what subtitles I read from addictive Korean Dramas. I know most shows are fantasy and well, drama.  I am a Wannabe Korean...or shall I say I-Want-to-be-Korean. I couldn't tell you the history of South Korea unless I whip out my phone and wikipedia that shit for you on Google. But that shit is summarized for us from random people that knows their facts. Well at least I would like to think so. ( I love Wikipedia. If I want to know something, thats the first source i go to...so if you think i'm full of shit, blame Wikipedia...teehee)

 I guess I don't want to be Korean, that bad. Im sure some adoptee out there, went to the library one time another and researched where they were from to get a glimpse of identity. I thought about doing it one time or another, but at the end...i opted to watch Korean Drama than read literature instead. lol. I have always said, i was not book smart. But I dont feel bad.  I mean theres some Americans who don't know their past presidents of United States. Especially the ones that are in currency (bills and coins). WOW.

My Mothers maiden name is/was Lee. 
My Fathers last name was: Kong.
My given Name was: Kong, Jee Sook

From what I remember, I don't remember how my biological mother looked like. I have always tried to remember, but whatever memory I have of her...her face is blurred.  Have you seen the movie, Memoirs of a Geisha? well I try to think that My mom was in bit of a pickle for her to place us in a orphanage. I always ask myself, if it was her decision or the guardians of mine at the time.  But as you read on, you will know what kind of a pickle she was in...

I believe that the orphanage that I stayed at falsified my records and information in documents that My adoptive parents currently have.  Not everything you read is 100% true. I believe that they put good things on there to make the adoptee look better to adopt.  For that, I truly do not know why and by what person placed me at the orphanage. But i will tell you what I do know.

to be continued....

  5. This is very interesting. I really do wonder what it would be like to be adopted. I actually didn't know that they would lie on those papers. . that sounds a bit illegal to me! (though a lot of illegal things happen so..) I really enjoy reading these by the way!
