The “Unknown” Culture Club: Korean Adoptees, Then and Now

A POWERFUL READ! This is a powerful and important read for all. The adoptees’ voice is all too often silenced, and it can literally be life or death for some to be heard and seen.” —  An Amazon Reader

The "Unknown" Culture Club: Korean Adoptees, Then and Now

Why do Korean adoptees disapprove of international adoption?

These stories validate the experiences of all those who have been ridiculed or outright abused but have found the will to survive, thrive, and share their tale. Adopted people all over the world are reclaiming the right to truth and access to birth documents. This book is a living testament to why previous “orphans” do not endorse the profitable Evangelical Orphan Movement. Those who work in the human rights field, are whistleblowers, or are adopted will see the value of this book. After years of forced “positivity” led by the profiteers, it is time to be real. These are real stories from individuals no longer serving the adoption pioneers’ fanciful wishes and advertising campaigns. Read this book before you pay adoption agency fees. These courageous narratives could save you tens of thousands of dollars or prevent you from obtaining a child unethically. Be the first to read these narratives and join the ever-expanding Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Network. It’s never too late to walk in awareness

Great works of literary art from the Korean Adopted Community that form a collage of life experiences and perceptions, in the form of stories, micro biographies and poetry. Very well written and upholstered entries from all participants. This is a great compendium to which the reader can dip in and out of. Good for long and short journeys by bus, car, train, plane. Take as little or as much ad you want. Highly recommended.” — James Sedonne

We Are Adoption.


Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Information Network (ATTWIN) was initiated on November, 5th 2011, hosted by Adoption Trafficking. We are a unique activist organization that uses various mediums to fulfill its mission to critique adoption policies and procedures, raise awareness, and share diverse adoption experiences. Simply put, our goal is to create a place that gives a well-rounded perspective on the adoption processes and policies. Members include domestic, late-discovery, transracial, internationally adopted people, and families separated by adoption from every continent.

What people are saying...

"We spend our whole lives explaining and justifying. This is a place we don't have to do that and can focus on our own pain and extend our understanding."
Marty Meyers

"I love the spaces where we can speak without hesitancy & without all the opposing voices. The non-adopted will never understand our stance in all its varying degrees & with their personal bias."
Gillian Moynihan

"From my experience, I believe that Adoption Truth & Transparency is essential for my fellow adopted individuals to overcome his or her obstacles and to support one another to seek Truth, Justice, and Peace."
Osmin Tobar

"Being able to ask questions in an adoptee-centric network without adoptive parents intervening can be lifesaving."
