If you've been following on social media, my birth sister Hyun Jung moved in with us in Seattle a couple of months ago. It has been exciting and challenging all at the same time as we try to get her settled back into the states as an immigrant. Wow, so much stuff to do. Plus, we never grew up as sisters, so sometimes that can be new and interesting, too.
As many of you know, Hyun Jung is my biological sister. We did not meet each other until I was 18 years old. It is pretty rare for a Korean sibling to move to America and live with an adoptee. So, recently we worked together to produce a livestream for Holt International.
Everyone was so kind and asked so many thoughtful questions. We appreciate it very much and are encouraged to talk about our story more often.
I found myself getting a little emotional in the first part of the video. My sister said she felt like she found a best friend in me and I wasn't really ready for that answer. I hadn't stopped to think about it.
Anyway, I wanted to put it all in one spot so I could find it again one day. If it helps someone out there, that would be amazing. Thank you for all of your support. I feel like I don't have the brain power to write something more insightful at this time but the links are here. Hope to keep in better touch but my sister keeps me active!
