    You forgot to add aerial photos compliments of the U.S. Army

    On a whim, I googled “Yang Ju” which was the name of the orphanage from which we adopted one of our daughters in 1975. She arrived in New York on her 2nd birthday along with 19 other orphans also from Yang Ju. Perhaps the orphanage that you show on your website is the same one. I was very touched by the photos and wonder what happened to the orphans shown. I want to thank you for your site and for all of the good works done by Mr. Kwak, his family, and the GIs from the 7th Infantry.

    Thank you for your post and kind words. It’s my desire to help fill in the voids that an adoptee might be searching for by providing a brief snap shot of the past through the eyes and observations of others. As I have read other stories online there seem to be a desire to connect to the past, yet for each international adoptee that seems to be at a different level. In some small measure I hope this site helps. What I remember was a home full of well cared for and loved children who always seemed happy.

    I love the picture with kids posed behind the gifts from the Island Hospital, especially the little guy in the front row squatting down with a frown on his face.

    Good job on the website!

    Hi Pat,

    I hope you read this email….or if the admin from this website could forward it to you it would be greatly appreciated. I was adopted from Yang Ju in 1975 and I believe that I was one of the 19 orphans that came to NY on that day. I grew up in Shoreham and have recently contacted two other adoptees that came over with me, one grew up in the same town and another in Rocky Point. If you can please email me @ dongsoonlee11@gmail.com I have some questions. Thanks so much! Jen (Lee, Dong Soon)

    I would love to get in contact with other orphans from Yang Ju Child Care Center or anybody others who had a relationship to this orphanage and the family KWAK.
