couldn’t be more proud to be friends with you. love this and you so much.
I realize it has been a long time since I last updated this blog. I think things came to a halt in the lead up to my reunion with my Korean biological family back in August. The weight of the event and the stream of every emotion possible that I was feeling prevented me from feeling capable of communicating the experience in an accurate and meaningful way. so i just stopped. I simply do not have the skills as a writer to describe all that happened and how it all made me feel, and I felt trying to do so in a public blog would trivialize it in some way.
Last week I attended a digital storytelling workshop in Lyons, CO. This unique opportunity allowed me to really reflect on my entire journey to Korea, my family(s), and my emotional response. I am tremendously thankful for the people I met, the skills I was taught, and the environment where I was able to create this piece.
I hope that it may give you a glimpse of what meeting my family was like, of what living in korea was like. I hope that if you are an adoptee considering reunion, that it inspires you in some way. This was the most difficult and rewarding moment of my life that I am proud to share with you.
