When will they learn that the adoptees cannot be expected to navigate Korean-language Web sites?
Here’s the board of Koreans looking for adoptees — on the Korean site — 8 entries already on what is the successor to GAIPS which had the same problem:
GUESS WHAT!? NO TRANSLATION.
Here we even have a photo of a big identifiable white French guy, but who’s going to ever find this on the Korean site? http://www.kcare.or.kr/board/board_view.jsp?no=7&listSize=10&pageNo=1&bcode=03_1 Obviously SOMEBODY knows where these kids went if the family has a picture, so why does the family have to post on a board where the adoptees are never going to find it??? Why doesn’t the agency help these people? Why doesn’t KCARE just look it up on their database, which has the name and birthdate, Korean agency and foreign agency, plus adoptive name of every adoptee who legally went out of the country?? WHY WHY WHY!?
And here we have the board in English — NO ENTRIES. NO DUPLICATE ENTRIES WITH TRANSLATIONS FROM THE KOREAN BOARD.
This is very very basic. TRANSLATION. Hello. How are families supposed to find each other if we can’t even navigate through the Web site!? This is so completely stupid and shows the absolutely utter lack of knowledge that Koreans have about adoptees and the utter disrespect and care they have for our families. We adoptees and families are not a shame. THIS is a shame.
I am so lucky that my mother found ME because I cannot imagine having to put up with this shit.
