I was wondering if some of the gang of 33 were the one's that use to beat me up when I was young living in Korea. You also being Amerasian know what I mean. Below is the link to my story. It was over a year ago but, It give's so hope in this world.
No Jon the Gang of 33 are fellow adoptees that feel that they lost their language, culture, family, Korean society, and identity BECAUSE OF ADOPTION! I have studied their reasons and felt that it was NOT adoption but the fact that most Korean women were pressured by society, their own families rejection, and lack of Society’s rejection of even full-blood children who are fatherless bastards, and most of all lack of government support of single Unwed Mothers. I believe in a Multi-tiered approach towards moving the Korean people to keep their children.

Mom and Son Reunite, Thanks to Korean Reality Show
Korean TV Show Connects Minnesota Man With Korean Birth Mom After Decades ApartThe search for his birth mother took a Minnesota man more than 6,000 miles to Korea, where he was given up for adoption 37 years ago.
'Did He Just Fall Out of the Sky'"She told my translator, 'Did he just fall out of the sky? He's all of a sudden here?'" Huston said.
His birth mother, who is 72 and never remarried, spent days preparing food for him. She said there was nothing better than watching her son eat well. "I'll remember it forever," he said.
For Huston's birth mother, the visit was bittersweet.
"The first time 37 years ago she put me on an airplane and didn't see me again," Huston said. "Now she got to see me but put me back on the plane and doesn't know when she'll see me again."
Still, she said, if she were to die tomorrow, she'd die happy. Huston hopes to bring his Korean and Minnesota families together someday.
Huston's two children know they have a third grandma now.
He shares their sentiment. "I feel very lucky, that I have two moms," he said. "And you know, my one mom gave me life. And my other mom helped me live life. So I'm just very fortunate."

For some few, stopping Intercountry Adoption is the best way to make Korean people take care of their own.
