I could not put this book down. I was absolutely shocked at Khara's horrific story! I don't know how she survived such abuse. On each page I felt her pain and the heartbreak for Kyung Sook being adopted away from her family members in Korea who knew nothing of this, were lied to and shown no compassion whatsoever. I am SO glad that she has shown such courage and resilience. She is a voice to be heard through her writing this memoir and educating people about the world of adoption. The sins of the adoption system need to be addressed and I commend Khara for bringing these issues to the forefront no matter how long it takes to make change.
This book is a wonderful read. The author covers so much about what an adoptee from korea may feel. Her story of her family left to search for her is heartbreaking and her descriptions of fitting into a totally new culture where she is labeled an outsider is very sad. She also manages to cover some of the corrupt side of international adoptions and is very courageous to tell her truth. She covers the spiritual side and the emotional side very well. It is a great read and an eye opener about how the adoption industry effects those in it's grasp.
