Dear Expectant Parent

leave a comment »

Just added this to my holtsurvivor blog, but I thought you might find it interesting as well…

Excerpt below:

Excerpts from the two page (yup, that’s it) guide to taking care of your new adopted child from Korea, circa 1966.  (from my own personal files) Bold added by me for highlighting.  Portions omitted are about plane arrangements, clothing to send, documents which will arrive, medical exams and immigration.  Sarcastic comments are fully mine.

Dear Expectant Parents:

This letter is to prepare you for your child’s arrival.  First of all, be sure you have all the fees paid…We must have this money before your child comes.

Holt adoption agency promised to contact the person I am searching for, possibly even a sister or twin.

Now they refuse, barring access.

It’s all about me

One of THE most offensive arguments for adoption I have ever witnessed.  If I had more time in life I would write down the transcripts and tear it apart.

I am sooo, sooo sorry for Dana Horton’s children.

They will probably spend their lives on a couch trying to figure out what happened to them…
