Hello, just wondering if any adoptees having posted a search for biological family details has come up with anything? How can you even verify the information in the adoption papers is valid? My papers indicate 'abandoned' but list a DOB (4/8/73), previous home (Dae Jun), & birth name (Kang Sang Mi). I have to assume this information was assigned to me once I came to the first orphanage which appears to be Bethel Garden. I'd so appreciate any help if anyone is able to help make sense of my timeline. I am unfamiliar with any of the cities or orphanages other than Seoul & Holt, of course.
9/6/75: Bethel Garden from Joongboo Branch Office 9/24/75: admitted to Holt 9/25/75:Kyungdong Baby Home 11/17/75:assigned to American family 3/3/76:shipped to USA
Papers have previous home listed as Dae Jun. Is this a city in Korea? I haven't been able to find any information on Bethel Garden.
Thanks for reading & best of luck to everyone searching for answers!
