Nicole Chung was always aware she had been adopted — she’s ethnically Korean; the couple who raised her, white — but she didn’t ask many questions about it as a child.
That changed years later, when she was pregnant and unable to answer her midwife’s family-history questions.
Like many adopted children, she decided to find her birth family to build not just a medical history, but a personal history for her future child.
Chung talks about this search (and everything that led up to it) in a new book, All You Can Ever Know, which she discussed with Weekend Edition’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro.
