I have been thinking a lot about my Dad lately. I miss him so much:( This is the only video I have of him. For those that know me, and those that think they know me, and those that don't really know me at all, this will give you a little insight to part of who I am and the wonderful parents that I have. This all took place back in 2003/2004, so it has been quite a while, and my kids are probably going to want to kill me for posting it now, but it was a very important and happy event in my life and I will never forget it. I want to thank my Birth Mother, Carol Jones, and especially my Parents, Bill & Priscilla Johnson....you have given me a wonderful life and I love you both to the moon and back.

Adoption is now high on the political agenda as the best option for the 65,000 children in care. But, with less than 5% actually placed for adoption, children must wait an average two years and seven months for a permanent family. Why does it take so long? What is the human cost?

First I warn you this is SUPER LONG!!! And unedited Hi I'm Tara, I and I am an independent Lularoe Retailer. Recently I shared this live in my shopping group. So many people were interested in learning more about our story, I am sharing it now here. I warn you it is long, and unedited. My husband and I recently sent in our DNA to be tested by Ancestry DNA. My husband, who was adopted at birth, has a fascination with Genealogy, and having our DNA tested to see where our "people" originated was an obvious and interesting next step, in his research.We could NEVER have imagined what we would discover. **I appreciate you watching, please know this is unedited, and taken straight from a Facebook live with my shopping group. I do answer their questions and absolutely go on tangents. Our story is amazing to us, and results are not typical :o)

I surprised my mom on her 79th birthday, by finding the daughter she gave up for adoption in 1966. I walked her through the process of how I found her, then did a Skype call and they saw each other for the first time in 46 years! Grab a box of tissue...

A Cutting Edge documentary that looks at the impact, on both children and parents, when children are sent away from the family home not for bad behaviour – but for the sake of their education. We follow four eight-year-old girls as they adjust to a new life away from their parents and their home. Each of their parents has decided that their child will be better off boarding in a private school, in this instance Highfield, one of the best boarding schools in the UK. But how do they cope being separated from their families at such a young age? And how in particular do the mothers deal with the difficult decision of sending their offspring away to be educated? Nurture is the new home for captivating and interesting documentaries and shows about all things parenting. We will be uploading every week so subscribe to keep updated.

Where Are You Going, Thomas? is a documentary by Jackie (Jaikyoung) Choi. It chronicles the story of Thomas Park Clement, an abandoned bi-racial Korean War orphan, who was adopted by a white American family in 1958. He overcame many obstacles to become a successful entrepreneur and a humanitarian. Thomas Park Clement’s birth father is assumed to be a U.S. military man who had visited Korea during the Korean War, and his mother was Korean. He was abandoned by his Korean mom when he was four or five years old after his father disappeared. He had lived homeless until he was brought to an orphanage and adopted by the Clement family from Charlotte, North Carolina in 1958. When he boarded the airplane to the U.S., no one had explained to him that he was about to embark on a journey to another country with a different language and different culture. He decided that he was not going to speak Korean anymore, and tried to forget everything about Korea, including his birth mom. Even when his adoptive parents invited some Korean students from university over to talk to him in Korean, he refused to talk to them. He was not a verbally talented child, so he had numerous difficulties in learning English. Although he had all kinds of disadvantages as an Asian-American adoptee, he made the best of his talents. He didn't speak much, but he never stopped thinking. It led him to the world of invention, which is he calls ‘imagineering’. Through taekwondo (Korean martial art), Thomas was reintroduced to Korea, and eventually ended up visiting Korea in 1998. He was simply amazed by what he saw in Korea. His wartime memories of Korea was very different than the industrialized, modern Korea he saw 50 years later. Afterwards, Thomas wanted to go to North Korea to help the people of North Korea. He felt all Koreans were one people separated by an artificial boundary, created by ideology and war, separating families. He brought North Korea surgical equipment, and lectured at the Pyong-yang University Teaching Hospital and their top surgeons. Unlike many adoptees, Thomas does not want to find his birth mother. He feels that his mother must have gone on with her life and perhaps her new family has no idea about her past, as it is the case with many birth mothers who gave up their children. He wants her to be happy with her new family. Currently, he's helping other adoptees who have a lot of self-doubt, feelings of being rejected or abandoned. He says, “You can look at it from one position or another position. And I look at it, and yes you were abandoned, but you were also chosen. So this is weird, but adoptees are the chosen ones.” See more of KoreanAmericanStory.org: Visit our website: http://koreanamericanstory.org/ Like our page: https://www.facebook.com/KoreanAmericanStory.org Follow us: https://twitter.com/KA_Story Add us: http://www.google.com/+KoreanAmericanStoryOrg View our channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/koreanamericanstoryorg KoreanAmericanStory.org is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to create and preserve the stories of the Korean American experience.
