Category: Legacy Project, Video


A month after 9/11, Aiyoung Choi got contacted by KAFSC (Korean American Family Service Center) about a father who wanted to leave his son with someone for the weekend. She ended up taking Michael—a sweet five year-old Korean boy who didn’t know any English—home with her for what she thought would be a few days. After the weekend, however, Michael’s father didn’t show up. Aiyoung shares her touching story of how Michael became a member of her family.
