DEVELOPING: Fundraiser for the Korean Unwed Mothers Families’ Association’s (KUMFA) HEATER facility surpasses monetary goal

From LGA Press – It’s becoming the “little fundraiser” that could.  The organizers of the Korean Unwed Mothers Families’ Association(KUMFA)/HEATER fundraiser announced today that they have surpassed their initial goal of $7,000.  A spokesperson for the fundraiser said that a formal thank you is forthcoming.  In the meantime, the mothers involved with KUMFA, according to the spokesperson, would like to recognize:

Upon hearing the news, Minnesotan Kevin Ost-Vollmers, who displays early signs of what many call the “Napoleon Complex,” was seen running around naked in his quiet residential South Minneapolis neighborhood.  Witnesses say that Ost-Vollmers’ short frame isn’t the only part that suffers from the Napoleon Complex.  “It reminded me of that scene in The Hangover when the Asian guy jumps out of the trunk,” said one neighbor.

South Korean and US adoption agencies could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.  Rumor has it that these agencies don’t like to recognize efforts they don’t helm.  They especially stay away from commenting on efforts led in part by those “meddling, angry adoptees,” such as the members of ASK and TRACK.  Furthermore, according to an unnamed source, South Korean agencies can’t grasp the idea of single women parenting since the agencies have treated single mothers like “baby factories” for so long.
