D., You know that Kim Su Rasmussen and I have differing opinions but have tried to respect him. We have opinions on causes, solutions to This Thing of Ours-Adoption. But I respect his learning and writing but disagree with his idea of stopping InterCountry Adoption in order to help Unwed Mothers keep their babies. I attended an event for ASK Adoptees Solidarity Korea dinner last Jan. 2010. At the end Kim Su Rasmussen (email@example.com) and Dr. Eli Park Sorensen (firstname.lastname@example.org) started a plan to "take over by democratic means" GOA'L to make it MORE Political than ASK or TRACK.
Sham means a FAKE, there was a fake election. Kim Su and Eli Park Sorensen planned this since last summer. They wanted to Politicize GOA'L because it has Non-Government Organization or NGO status, ASK and TRACK both do NOT have a Korean NGO recognized official status.
Gang of 33 were persons who voted to override first to NOT re-elect Molly Holt, then they added a girl, Julie Jong Koch, who just came to Korea 3 months ago was allowed to become a candidate and they voted for NO ONE. Now Daewon (Jan Wenger) Wenger is Now on the Board of Directors, together with Rev. Kim DoHyun of KoRoot as a Board of Director.
They together with other Board Members can appoint a Secretary General when they get together. Vice-SG Katie MeeJoo Kim Putes is the Interim Secretary General. But don’t worry everything will still sound Neutral as before.
GOA’L will soon change to Anti-Overseas/International Adoptions, but hundreds of Special Needs children and others Not adopted by Korean couples will then go WHERE?
