There once was a little Korean girl living in an orphanage and an American soldier who was stationed in South Korea.
This soldier fell in love with this little girl and decided that she was meant to be a part of his family back home.
The little girl excited to start a new life didn’t understand that she would be leaving her home and her three older siblings for a new life.
The little girl returned back to the United States with the solider, ready to meet her new family. She became the fifth member of this new family, leaving her past behind.
She wasn’t necessarily welcomed with open arms to her new family. Her new mother was unsure about the adoption and her new brother and sister also adopted, acted as if she was the only adopted one due to her ethnicity.
As she got older, her childhood memorize faded and she made new ones. Over the years she became incredibly close with her new father. When she was nine he passed away, leaving her alone with her mother and two siblings.
The girl, not so little anymore, grew up into an amazing young woman. She graduated college, danced professionally, got a good job, married and eventually had two daughters of her own.
Years had passed since her second daughter had been born when she received a letter in the mail from Holt Adoption Agency. This letter was from the agency that was responsible for her adoption, saying that her Korean family was looking for her.
A month later she flew to Korea to meet her family.
It is now 2015 and her family is visiting her in America for the second time.
