This book had three goals:
1. To educate the Korean adoptee community about our history (I suggested the timeline to show our history).
2. To function as a directory for the attendees. The directories have the adoption photos as well as current photos. Next to the photos are the original Korean names given to the adoptees, the dates they were adopted and the organizations they were adopted from. This is key information that helps the adoptees start a dialogue, to bond, to find each other and to find others adopted through the same organizations. I left blank spaces for people who didn't have adoption photos. Not all of us have access to these photos for myriad reasons.
3. To serve as a resource for attendees to find each other because we are scattered all over the world (Australia, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, the U.S., to name a few). I organized the directory of attendees by country. It was easier to remember the country someone came from and attendees could also see who else was from their countries. It also allowed them to see how many adoptees were living in specific countries and where the Korean diaspora had landed. This is improtant for the adoptees — for us to understand where we came from and where we ended up. It created a strong starting point to find each other.
The book was 112 pages and was printed in South Korea.
