"Going Home"

Okay, I don't want the focus of this blog to be adoption topics... though it seems to be more and more lately... BUT I saw this preview for a documentary "Going Home" on Serenity in Seoul's blog, and it struck a nerve. It's about a guy who goes to Korea to meet his birth family... the preview alone made my eyes well up with tears. I mean, I feel like my experience here is so unique, but here's another person who's doing the same things as me! Kind of cool (and sad at the same time) that there are probably hundreds, thousands of adoptees with similar stories to me.

Here's the preview... apparently it's showing at the Korean American Film Festival in New York. Obviously I can't make that, but I'm dying to get my hands on a copy of it! Time for some internet research...

Hi Kim -- thanks so much for the shout-out! I just wanted to mention that my name is actually Sang-Shil and the name of my blog is Land of the Not-So-Calm. Serenity in Soul is someone else, although I do comment on her blog fairly often. Just wanted to let you know.

Hope that you have a chance to see the film sometime!
