With all the adoption bashings that have been going on by a few adoptees and their organizations, and by a few Korean nationals, adoption (both Domestic and Intercountry) has gone through some tough trials in the last few years.
As an adoptee who had lived in an orphanage in Korea for eight long years before being adopted at age 14, I am compelled to come to the defense of adoption, and give a perspective from an adoptee who knows what it is like to live in Korea as an orphan.
The essay titled "In Defense of Adoption" was published in the Fall issue of the Korean Quarterly, based in Minesota.
