When I was a baby I was adopted. I came here on a plane and I met my new family at the airport. I came from Seoul, South Korea, in Asia. Now I live here in Sayville.

As soon as I got home, I threw up on my dad. Also, my brother and I pulled on our dog Zoe’s tongue and tail. My brother Tyler is older than I am and was also adopted from South Korea. We were always carried on our parents’ back because that’s how we were carried in Korea. I also always had a stuffed animal and blanket at all times.

Being adopted is pretty fun because at school people don’t know where you were born. Also some people made fun of my eyes at school. But I also liked school because I was different. My family is great. I am curious and I do hope to visit South Korea some day.
