After the initial video chat with my sister and my Korean mom, my sister send me the facebook link to our brother, so I spend some hours just stalking both Facebook profiles. I can´t tell how strange the sensation is, to suddenly have 2 "new" siblings.
They were 30 and 25 at that time, so obv. I have never heard about them before. And two grown up people, which each life and story. Both very intriguing, very different but each with similarities to me. In many ways I feel like a mix of them both, and instantly felt I understand them both.
As this time, I was however still sceptical if this was infact my real family. Maybe there have been a mistake? So I tried to control my own excitement a bit. I told my sister I wanted to have a DNA test, and she said OK. However in the meantime, our Oma has arrived home to the city she lives in (she visited my sister when I spoke with them) and she send pictures of me as baby + pictures of me with my Danish bother, that she have received from the orphanage (which my Danish parents had send to show I was ok)
One of the pictures she send of me, this is the first time I have seen pictures of my self in this age.
My own daughter Chloe about the same age I was, when I was adopted.
Apparently, after my Korean mom gave me up for adoption, she met an American soldier in Seoul and got a daughter with him, after two years they decided to move to the US. Where they three years after had a boy. For me suddenly having these extra siblings was very intense. For never have had anyone adult I looked liked, and suddenly having three people, was very much for me, and it was hard for me to handle all these new emotions. To see pictures of my younger brother as a Marine or my little sister´s wedding. These life, that I never have been a part off.
Before my sister found me, Jani and I had already booked a trip to Seoul, South Korea to start the search for my family. This was the first time either of us was there, and we looked forward for it, but admit I much rather wanted to go to US instead.
