Not many of you know that I was adopted from Korea when I was 5 years old. I've always been fascinated with the culture and have dreamed of taking a trip to my "old stompin' grounds"... including the orphanage my little brother and I were dropped off at and the city where we were born in. This past summer we had the greatest opportunity to visit my wonderful birth mother whom we have been reunited with in the past year, but instead of taking that trip to Korea that I always imagined us doing, we went to France for a month where she's lived for the last 19 years with her sweet French husband!
Anyway, This picture is of my daughter's Korean Hanbok... which is the traditional dress that women wear. Ava looks like a doll in her getup... but she's in bed right now and I wanted to do the post before tomorrow (big day with Church, Superbowl and The Office, ya know!).
One day we'll visit Korea... I'm sure I'll want to go with my birth mother... since she has a lot of family there still-- I have even spoken with my Birth GRANDPARENTS!! Very cool!
