received a call the other day that just blew my mind. My birth mother called from Korea. I couldn't understand anything she was saying so she got an interpreter to translate for us. We exchanged emails and this is what I got in my email today.

bye bye good luck

your familys ficturs send for me please by e-mail

Myung Ok is my older sister(older by 2 years). I went to Korea back in April of 2000 for her wedding and I am so happy to hear that she has had kids. I am now an Aunt to two nephews and 2 nieces:) I would love to see pictures of them. I wonder if they can email me some? Maybe with the internet being so readily available, I'll be able to keep in touch with them easier.

From the sound of this letter, I believe my birth mother's husband left her and she had to move in with my sister and her husband. It's just sad to hear that. My birth mother has had so much to deal with in her lifetime. She deserves a little happiness.

I would love to go visit again. I just don't know if I'll ever be able to afford it. Well that and being able to find the time. Maybe in a few years, but before then I need to learn how to speak Korean. I keep telling myself that I'll look into hiring a tutor but I forget or get distracted. Now I'm gonna have to staple a note to my forehead.
