Why knowing your biological family is cool, but hard

I have another biological sister who's getting married...this time it is my youngest sister--Yeon Jeong! She is so precious to me because she is very free-spirited. I think she's beautiful, inside and out. We spent a lot of time together during my last trip to Korea, and we couldn't stop crying when I left her at the train station. It was a very emotional goodbye.

Meeting birth family is a very difficult thing. I love mine very much, but adoptive families should know that meeting them never brings closure. If anything, it opens a whole new can of worms. I am so happy for my Korean family right now, but it is also painful to know that I cannot be there. Even though I wouldn't trade my life in the U.S. for anything, sometimes I have a hard time trying to understand why my sisters and I had to live a world apart.

Anyway, this is a happy time for our family, for both the Parks and the Sherwoods....

Plus, isn't it wild how Koreans get their wedding pictures done? Is this a hot new trend there or what? I don't know of very many men here who would dress up like this, but I love it!

The wedding is Saturday, May 19th.

Wow! Those pics are incredible! Very beautiful!
I'm sorry you won't be able to attend. That makes me sad.
Congrats to the couple!
