      Thank you for changing my life and the lives of 20 other Korean adult adoptees on my recent Asia Inc. sponsored trip to Korea. The program and schedule was a perfect balance between seeing some of the well known sites of Korea and serving the Korean community. I also enjoyed the participants whose ages ranged from the mid-50′s to early 20′s. Their collective experience in navigating adoption throughout their lives was instrumental in helping me to find my own way. I look forward to serving Asia Inc. in whatever endeavor they pursue within the adoption community.
