This is what it's all about...

Tonight ranks up there as one of my favorite nights here. I had my first actual conversation with Birth Father! You should've seen his face when I was asking him questions and answering his questions appropriately... ear to ear smiles. (I am pretty sure I was looking the same way.) Granted our conversation was nothing deep or earth shattering, but being able to ask tell him how our classes are going, what we did last weekend, and find out how he's been lately was a.m.a.z.i.n.g.

It's actually perfect timing because this morning I was complaining to Mark that I don't feel like I've made much progress. But then dinner tonight happened and I'm feeling so much more confident that all the studying and practicing is paying off. Three weeks into class, and seeing these kind of results... WOW!

That's great, Kim!! I bet your dad was so happy after not being able to really communicate for so long. When will you show off your new Korean SKILLZ to your birth mom?

THAT IS SO COOL! (Do you know how to express coolness in Korean?)

Kim,I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when you started speaking Korean with birth-father. I can just see the surprise look on his face. We are so proud of you and Mark and feel that this time spent learning Korean will have many benefits down the road. Good luck as you continue your studies. Now it's time to impress SanQwan!!

Kim, we are very proud of you and Mark for taking these steps to learn Korean. Can only imagine how pleased your birth Father is! Certainly it will continue to bring you more joy communicating with your birth family.
