Others Lived in Sung-Ro Won Babies Home until I was 7 years old. I was adopted to a family in Oregon, USA. I am seeking my birth parents especially my birth mother to thank her for putting me in an orphanage where I was able to be placed in a good home and be given many opportunities to learn and excel that I might have not been able to. I'm now grown-up and I would like to return to Korea to make sure the birth parents are okay.

Other related information I found a letter from the Holt Children's Services writing on behalf of the orphanage to my adoptive parents and this is what it reads: The birth mother worked at the orphanage as a Bomo starting in 12/19/1975 and had lived together in the orphanage until 1978. During that time, the birthmother referred her another younger child to Eastern Child Welfare Services for overseas - adoption. But the birth mother wanted to raise K80-2694 (my case number) by herself at that time. However, after the birthmother left the orphanage in 1978, the orphanage lost contact with her. At the time the director of the orphanage was not sure whether the birthmother would reclaim her or not. Eventually the child was referred to Holt Children's Services for adoption as the birthmother did not have appeared for such a long time. The birthmother called on the director of the orphanage on 5/5/81 and the director informed the birthmother that her child had been placed for an adoption. The director got her birthmother's address from her at that time of the call. I found another document titled "Confidential Information" and it reads in section C under Child's Background line item 5, it reads I was entered on 11/19/1975 to the Sung Ro Won Baby Homes from Police box. These documents contradict each other.
