Dreams Coming True

This week I'm transported with love, joy and wonder: Our daughter Yunhee married her beloved Josh (ours, too) on July 31. The night before we held a Korean ceremony complete with traditional wedding hanbok and ritual bows.

Tomorrow I arrive at Camp Sejong in northwestern New Jersey, where I'm the creative writing teacher for the Korean-born campers, ages 7-14, from both adoptive and Korean-American families. (For an account of my first year at Sejong in 2007, see "Hong Kil Dong Goes to Camp".)

We'll be creating vision maps, titled "A Bridge of Dreams," imagining their lives in the future and how they'll pull from the strengths of both their cultures. I'll be using Yunhee's wedding photos as an example of what that can look like.

Was there ever a more stunning bride, a happier groom, or a more gloriously heart-filled mother????

Thanks so much, Sasha. We're still processing the wonder of it all.
