Korean Adoption: An American Family Story

September 30, 2003 – January 7, 2004

American History Museum
12th and Constitution Ave., NW
Washington, DC

Location: 2nd Floor, West Wing

A child's hanbok (Korean dress), immigration documents, and a Congressional bill are used to tell the story of one family's role in the growth of international and transracial adoption that followed the Korean War orphan crisis and reshaped American family and community life into the 21st century.
