Adoptees Without Children

  • Lotte Hotel 30 Eulji-ro, Euljiro 1(il)-ga Jung-gu, Seoul South Korea (map)

Have you wondered what it would be like to know someone who looks like you? For adoptees who do not have children and have not reunited with our Korean families, this may never be possible. If this is part of your adoption journey, how has it impacted your identity as an adoptee?

This session is for those who have not connected a 1st or 2nd degree relative either in person or online AND who also do not have their own, biological children. If you do not meet these requirements, we request you honor the space by selecting one of the other amazing sessions during this time slot.
