My daughter was adopted from South Korea in the early 90s. We have recently found evidence (an envelope in the back of a relatives closet) indicating that her birth mother was trying to locate her sometime in the late 90s.

My daughter would like to find her...we have her name and birthdate and last known city of residence....but looking online, it seems that her mother's name is very common in So. Korea....there are many many people with the same first and last name there.

Is anyone familiar with a service or website we might use to aid in our search?

Thank you, C

What was the reason the biological mother gave up her daughter?
If it's not a very good one i would not support her to travel to South Korea.
South Korea hasn't been really poor for the last 20 years so it can't be that.

The biological mother did not give up her daughter. She had joint custody in a divorce agreement. The child was brought to the U.S. by the bio father, against the court order. I later adopted her, it's a long story.

Right, what your saying is that the child was taken away from the mother by the father?
