An Adoption Journey

published 3 weeks ago

Ten years ago, Jenny Heijun Wills travelled to South Korea in hopes of reuniting with her birth parents and to answer the essential question: Why did they put her up for adoption? Her memoir of family and identity reveals what she found out and tells of the journey that led her to an even more profound relationship. Steve Paikin talks to Wills, an associate professor of English at the University of Winnipeg and the author of "Older Sister, Not Necessarily Related," which was recently shortlisted for the 2019 Writers' Trust Award.
