Last week I was five days in Copenhagen, to finish the TV2 program I have been a part of for 12 months and to meet with my lovely ASIAN ladies. One week before the trip. The TV crew told me, my sister Hana would come from the US, and a couple of days my friend Joanna decided to come, and one day before my parents told me they were coming.
There is something almost magic about showing my little sis - Copenhagen where I spend almost 10 years off my life, here in Nyhavn.
Hana arrived a bit before me. And even if we have already have seen each other a lot, I have honestly still not being used to have a sister. Also, this was the first trip, where none of our kids were around so that we could focus on each other (and wine)
My friend Jo (I admittedly sometimes take for granted, who talks more than me, and who I respect and love, and who have supported with no limits the last 4 years, she is almost like one of my guy-friends) And my beautiful little sis.
Comfort food and beer:)
For me, this trip also concluded the circle in the search for my Korean mother. And the last 12 months as been overwhelming.
I have been through all the emotions possible but ended up being more at peace than I ever thought possible. After a whole life chasing my own shadows, I feel I can start focusing on who I am, and not who I thin people would like me to be.

A lot of people have told me they feel I have changed, and I think they are right, I found myself less angry but also less worried despite the news in London I still feel more light-hearted than before. Obviously, I can´t speak for other adopted children, but for me finding my Korean mom was a very good thing. But I´m also grateful, that not only did she want to see me, but she also waited for me to be ready and then she came to Malta with Hana.
