Okay... so I've been way out of the loop. But, my new favorite person is Jenna Ushkowitz. She looked stunning at the Golden Globes last night... and when I looked at her name, I thought "she has to be either adopted... or married... or her father has to be a non-Korean person..."
Isn't it funny how we adoptees go through all of the scenarios? I have this conversation with adoptive families all the time... We want to ask, but it feels so wrong.
Anyway, on a side note... the all-knowing Wikipedia page called Jenna a "Korean-American." As an adoptee, I always feel like that's weird.
Do any other adoptees/adoptive families feel that way? The reason I say this... is because... when I was at the University of Kansas, there was a Korean Student Association and an Asian American Student Union. The AASU was for anyone. The KSA was for Korean international students. So, I've always separated the two in my head-- I like to say I'm Korean-born. I get all weird when I call myself a Korean-American. Even though, I am Korean. Does that make any sense?
I'd just like to know what other people think.
