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. *
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....
