While traveling, adoptees and families often wish to reconnect with people and places important in the life of their son or daughter. Reminiscing is an important part of the journey and these points of connection provide a foundation for you or your child.

The Ties Program is pleased to assist by requesting permission to visit orphanages, exploring the possibility of meeting foster families and orphanage caretakers, and making arrangements to see other places important to your family’s story such as a hospital of birth, place of finding, or birth city. Families will travel with an English speaking guide to assist with and personalize the visits.

About International Birth Family Search & Reunion
  • In many of the countries we serve, it is possible to do a birth family search. Frankly, there have been many more reunions for international adoptees than we ever thought possible when we started a quarter of a century ago.
  • We are happy to help you, explain the process, and talk with you about the pros and cons of “finding or not finding.”  We neither encourage or discourage birth family search, but rather help you understand the process and complexities so you make a decision you are comfortable with.
  • When or if birth family is located, we can also help by setting up the logistics of a meeting, transportation and translation.

Here are some of the people and places families have or hope to visit as part of their journey to Korea. This list is an evolving one with frequent additions. See something missing? Or, are there other people or places on your “dream list?” Please email us. We are always open to helping you with other connections.
