순간과 기억 The Moments & the Memories
A compilation of articles The 20-Year History of the Seoul YWCA Summer School for Korean Adoptees in Europe
was published to commemorate the 20th
anniversary of Seoul YWCA Summer School for foreign adoptees.
This compilation of articles looks back at the foreign adoptees summer school program that the World Fellowship Department developed from 1990 to 2006. Looking closely through memoirs the World Fellowship Committee members left behind and looking closely through the reviews of the participants, the article brings back dim recollections and memories. The compilation also contains an article reexamining the problem of adoption in Korea in various perspectives. There is also an English translation of these articles, which allows it to be more readable for the foreign adoptees who had participated.
By looking back at the 20-year history of the Seoul YWCA Summer School for Korean Adoptees, we hope it allows one to think about the difficulties and sorrows foreign adoptees may undergo, and to contemplate over possible improvements in adoption policy.
