Book: “Who Will Answer” by Dr. David Hyungbok Kim

I just finished reading “Who Will Answer” by Dr. David Hyungbok Kim.

“Dr. Kim’s book chronicles his meeting with the late Harry Holt in 1956, and their subsequent work together to find loving adoptive families for the homeless children in war-torn.”

My husband read this before me, and we both agree that this is a “must read” book for families in the Korea adoption program. The book gives the historical context for inter-country adoption from Korea, gives some insight into the history and culture of Korea, tells the fascinating story of Dr. Kim’s life as well as telling the history of Holt Korea and Holt International. This book would also be of interest to those seeking to learn more about Korea and/or international adoption in general. In addition to the book being very interesting, I have a much better understanding of the origins of Korean adoption having read this book.
