Out of a South Korean Orphanage and Into the World
This project exists to tell many stories
There is no single human story that allows us to understand what happened to the millions of infants and children separated from their South Korean families of origin, over the last more than 60 years. It does, in fact, require many stories—contrasting the lives of the adopted and the aged-out, the nurtured and the abused, the blessed and the broken, the loved and the lost, and the almost unimaginable diversity of stories that lie in between.
