Together at Last:  Stories of Adoption and Reunion in the Age of DNA

TOGETHER AT LAST is a collection of first-person stories that explores the intersection of multiple histories: the Korean War, military camptowns, immigration, and transnational adoption. Taken together, they challenge us to rethink the legacies of the un-ended Korean War and re-evaluate the foundational role that Korean military wives and adoption played in the formation of the Korean American community. At the same time, these stories reveal how consumer DNA testing has radically altered the search and reunion process for adoptees, sometimes disclosing shocking family secrets and long-sought answers about identity in a matter of weeks. But the seeming simplicity of DNA tests belies the challenge of how we deal with the consequences of newly discovered familial connections. What these narratives illustrate is the capacity of the human heart to persevere and forgive, while opening up to the vulnerable work of reshaping self and family.

Dust of the Streets:  The Journey of a Biracial Orphan of the Korean War

By Thomas Park Clement

As one of many children of the Forgotten Korean War, this book is written to share my experiences as an abandoned and adopted biracial child and how I lived through the triumphs and tribulations that have come my way.  The book captures moments of the positive and not-so-positive lessons learned on my journey.  The use of humor was not to undermine the significance of the experience but to soften the harsh bitter pill of reality.

Mixed Korean: Our Stories

From the struggles of the Korean War, to the modern dilemmas faced by those who are mixed race, comes an assortment of stories that capture the essence of what it is to be a mixed Korean. With common themes of exclusion, and recollections of not looking Korean enough, black enough, white enough, or "other" enough, this powerful collection features works by award winning authors Alexander Chee, Michael Croley, Heinz Insu Fenkl, Joel Peterson and Victoria Namkung, alongside pieces composed by prominent writers, poets and scholars. Interwoven between known literary names, are the voices of newcomers with powerful memories that have never been captured before. Collectively, these stories will resonate with anyone who has ever stood on the outside of a group, longing for inclusion.
