Product Description

Journey of Hope documents the personal stories of Korean adoptees who describe their personal feelings toward adoption, their hope for a connection between themselves and their native Koreans, and how their viewpoints changed upon meeting their fraternal families. Adoption agencies share their viewpoints on how international adoption trends are changing, and Ambassador Hur Ri-Hoon discusses the Korean government’s views on Korean adoption and how domestic adoption is currently being encouraged in Korea today.

Producer and Editor Karen Hae Soon Eckert stated about Journey of Hope that she created this documentary to “help bridge the gap between Koreans, adoptive families, and adoptee communities.” She also said, “Although there will always be a cultural and language difference, there is hope that adoptees and Koreans will better understand each other and overcome social and cultural barriers.”
