History of Korean adoption during 50 years

Every child deserves a family, and has the right to grow up in a warm, loving home.

  • In South Korea, adoption was initially introduced to find families to look after war orphans and mixed-race children, and has gone through a series of changes over the past 50 years. The nation’s economic development and improved quality of life have led to a rise in domestic adoption, enhancing the public perception of adoption. Recently, the South Korean government designated the National Adoption Day.
  • As adoption requires consistent government support and the international community has demanded that governments offer adoptive child care and post-adoption services for the best interest of the children, the South Korean government has implemented the Special Adoption Act, turning the KCARE(Korea Central Adoption Resources) into the KAS(Korea Adoption Services).
  • We will dedicate ourselves to ensuring the best interests of the children and assuming our social responsibility for adoption. For the sake of this, we will systematize post-adoption services and encourage domestic adoption by building a cooperative system between government, adoption agencies, and relevant organizations, and establishing a centralized adoption database system.
  • We are hoping for greater care and support for adoption.

The President of KAS, Wondeug Kim
