I am 28 years old (adopted from Seoul Korea as a baby - born 9/28/1985). My Korean name was Jong Hee Lim. I was told I have two older sisters there and I so much would love to meet/correspond with them. My favorite movie is "The Joy Luck Club" about a U.S. born Chinese girl who is reunited with her half-sister (twins) in China after their Mother's death. I find that so sad.

It would help my life so much to find my sisters. I was adopted through FCVN Adoption Agency in Denver, Colorado in April 1986. I came on the plane with a teenage boy and a 4 year old boy both being adopted in the Denver area as well.

My Mom says, I am very pretty and it would be so wonderful to see someone that looks like me and meet them and my "birth Mother". I had a "convulsion" at birth and I have worried that my birth Mother has had to worry too much about this - all these years.

Please understand by story and maybe help if you can. I live with my Mother here as I have had trouble learning but most say: "I am very smart". I am also very "stubborn". My Mother is older and wishes that I could live long after she passes with the chance to know my Birth Family.

Thank you.

Check with your adoption agency (FCVN) and see if they can find any point of contact for you in Korea. Or at least name of the agency with whom they arranged your adoption in Korea. Then may be you can contact them to get further details.It would be nice to know whom your real family is no matter how they are now...Good Luck...

Do you have money to travel to Korea? Or to hire a detective? Do you speak Korean?

I think that using city-data will not be very helpful. Try to contact the agency, as someone suggested, and also the hospital where you were born and the city hall of the place where you were born.

In general, I would recommend searching Korean websites and forums- in Korean.

Good luck!
