Own Words

I have often thought that my life takes the shape of an astrological triangle – Korea, America and me in between. I was adopted from Korea when I was four, firmly rooted in America now at age forty, and my heart and senses are torn, my inner vision yearning for Korea. I am a mom to a talented and smart 21 yr old (who towers over me at 6’ 2) and am married to a wonderful Irish man who rivals me in stubbornness. My sister was also adopted from Korea (we are not blood-related) and we are close. I love taking part in her kids’ lives, Ty – 11 and Bella – 8… I strive to be a mirror to magnify their Korean-ness and channel that here in America. I have been back to Korea once in 2008—unforgettable. I look forward to going back and seeing how Korea will change for me as I continue to change and embrace forgotten parts of me. I am currently finishing up a memoir, a labor of necessity. Lastly, I love how Korean Americans are talented & creative, opinionated & stubborn with a uniqueness all their own, and the amazing Korean cuisine, of course!
