#NAAM2020 – This Happened Four Years Ago

18 Nov

Four years ago Adam Crasper was deported back to South Korea. Mr. Crasper was adopted by US Citizens as a three year old from South Korea. Please watch the segment done on November 17th, 2016 telling his story on Seattle Station KIRO 7. Hear what happened to him.

You can lend your support in finally getting Citizenship for All Adoptees whose adoptive parents failed to get them naturalized before they turned 18. Please go to Citizenship For All Adoptees on FB.

    I feel really bad for him. They really don’t know how deep internally this goes and the psychological impact it has on him. It annoys me that she kept repeating about the ‘crimes’ he committed and that he turned his life around, like he was such a hardened criminal!!! Stereo typing and putting that negative adoption stigma on him!!! SMT!!! A similar situation of citizenship happened to me when I was around 7-10 years old. I was born in Canada and adopted to Bahamian parents in the Bahamas. This day I was traveling from Canada back to the Bahamas using my Canadian passport. Immigration officers in the Bahamas stopped me and held me in this room and would not release me until my parents came to explain ..and prove…who I was to them and why I didn’t have a Bahamian passport. My mother had repeatedly asked my Father to apply for me. It took this situation for them especially my father to see the seriousness of the matter. Persons want to adopt ‘international’ children but have no idea what it takes to do it properly…including encouraging and being supportive of the child learning its native language and culture to have a sense of who they are and where they came from which non-adoptees and society take for granted and have no idea what adoption really is. Further, adoptive parents and society believe that that child’s life begins with them and at the time of adoption. They have to be educated and made to understand that that child had a whole life and family before them, before adoption.
