The path to self-discovery can be complicated. Perhaps, even more so for an adoptee.

Jae was adopted at 4 months old from Seoul, South Korea, yet she did not come to terms with her Asian identity until college. Now, there’s no question about it. As a Korean adoptee, it’s never been easy opening up that part of herself to others. She shares, “It could get really dark.”

This is the first installment in the Love/Hate series of the Legacy Project, highlighting the Korean Adoptee experience, and the connection to mental health.

Follow us on these stories during National Adoption Awareness Month to hear about those in our community that have fought to overcome these complex struggles.
