Organizations supporting post adoption services for Overseas Korean Adoptees in Korea

1. G.O.A.'L (Global Overseas Adoptee's Link)

G.O.A.'L was established in March, 1998 in Seoul by European and U.S Korean adoptees in collaboration as a non-profit, nongovernmental organization.
G.O.A.'L plays an important role to assist returning adoptees as the number of return is increasing and claim their right to know about their birth.
G.O.A.'L's focus is to inform Korean society and government about the existence of overseas adopted Koreans by being positive link between adoptees and Korean society.
One of main works is to provide postreunion service with appropriate translation and interpretation services. G.O.A.'L also supports adoptees who are looking for birthfamilies with Birth Family Search Directory and utilize media (YTN and KBS) and magazine (Guide Post). It is important for G.O.A.'L to raise awareness regarding issues of Korean adoption and break down the walls of prejudice and misunderstanding and make adoptee's voice heard through seminars and publishing related adoption information.

2. KoRoot
