She’s Country

The nature of exploring the adoption experience often leads adoptees to continually shine a light on birth; birth mothers, birth land, birth culture – who we were born to be. However, while we will acknowledge the experience when prodded, we usually don’t spotlight who we were raised to be.

I have the pleasure of spending a week in my hometown of New Ulm, Minnesota with my family and decided it would be a great time to shine a light on the people, places, food, attitudes, etc., that have molded me into the person I am today. So stayed tuned for a picture journal of a week with my adopted roots.

To start, this is my immediate family. I sort of look like I photo bombed their family portrait.

This is the next step up + spouses and kids.

A song I would have liked while growing up . . .

    Keum Mee, I will truly look forward to this picture blog. I’m originally from Northfield, MN and my children love going back to visit our extended family there. I’ve eaten at the German restaurant in New Ulm on numerous occasions. My son loves country music and Jason Aldean. His sister loves hip hop and rap. They are quite a pair when discussing music! Thanks for posting.

  2. Wow! I went to Martin Luther College a decade ago and, aside from the one other adopted Korean boy in my class, never EVER saw another Asian in the greater Brown County area. Even though I haven’t lived there for almost ten years and didn’t live there for that long, when I read that New Ulm was your hometown, it made my heart happy.
