the start of my grateful life

Yesterday I found this! My baby passport from Republic of Korea. My name was Soon-Ei Son. There was also paperwork from the social worker who had to write reports about my behavior at the orphanage and she said "baby laughs loudly, she does not act spoiled, she seems very smart. She is adaptable and would be a good baby for a family." Yay! These discoveries are so inspiring to me. Thank you social worker who ever you are, for recommending me for adoption! It's crazy to think about all the small intricacies that go into your life. What if the social worker would have observed me on a day when I was a brat and wouldn't stop crying? What if the social worker was having a bad day and mindlessly going through the motions of the job? Would the turnout have been the same? Thinking about all of the possibilities really has me notice how I do and don't contribute to others, and that I'm crazy grateful for this life I get to live. I'm getting closer to finding the orphanage I came from, and am planning a volunteer trip to Seoul City this Fall to give back. Stay tuned for more! Thank you for being on this journey with me.
