Description

My name is Orphan. My father planted the seed of love in my Korean mother but regretted it. When I turned four, she handed me to an orphanage that sent children to America, with my photo, birth certificate, and her note: "Son, your father was a great man doing great things for Koreans, but I can't keep you. Please forgive me..."Returned and Reborn: A Tale of a Korean Orphan Boy is a man's journey of self-discovery; from a nameless boy whose American adoptive parents used him and other "adopted" boys as free laborers, to a man of purpose and goals after returning to his birth nation. He reunites with his mom--a former student of the college his priest father had founded and served as dean--who is now dying from toxic chemicals the U.S. Military disposed of in the Korean waterways. Following a tragic accident, he accepts a divine invitation.
