Overview

In 1971, Lee Myonghi, aged five, was taken from her family and placed in a Korean orphanage. Six-months later, she was flown to the United States, where she and two other Korean girls were adopted by a Min nesota couple. They renamed her Kelly Jean. Fourteen years later, Kelly found herself at the doorstep of a Minnesota agency, although this time as a teen mother giving her own child up for adoption. Kelly later married and had two more children. Then, in 2007, Kelly's husband found her original, Korean family, and so began a journey that reunited Kelly with the family whom she thought had abandoned her, and brought her face to face with the daughter she herself had lost twenty-five years before.

Told with refreshing honesty, Songs of My Families is the moving story of two generations of women forced to make agonizing choices as they coped with harsh economic realities and personal crises. It is also an affirmation of the strength of family, the importance of one's cultural heritage; and the enduring power of love.
