    She is not a slave girl Brett and I'm sure she would slap you around some if she heard you.

    How old was she when we was adopted? Can she speak Korean? I know a few adopted Koreans myself, because I am too adopted. (From Europe)

    If I remember correctly, the lead character was Ekaterina. And her daughter was named Alexandra Alexandrovna. Obvoiusly, she just didn't spent much time inventing father's name.

    Hi, yes I know that you were also adopted. My niece was adopted when she was only a few months old and ouy family loves her very much, she has no memory of her life in Korea, however I think she is planning a visit to see where she was born one day.

    I have two other members of my extended family who are from Korea, also. A little boy and a little girl. The little girl is only about 5 now but unfortunately she has part of one arm missing. She is very cute and boystrous though. She has no idea that she is missing anything and it just breaks my heart to see her standing on a chair with a pool stick playing pool with everyone at family gatherings. One "must" play pool with her as she will not take no for an answer.

    Oh, yes that is very young. They live in Australia, right?

    I was adopted when I was 4 1/2. My sisters were 6 and 8. My good friend in school, who is a year older actually, was adopted from Moscow when she was 10. And her parents just adopted a little boy from Belaruse at 2 1/2. My sisters and I are planning a trip to see our mama in Ukraine, our other sister, and maybe our grandmother. But there are some complications that I won't get into because it's very complicated....

    Can your cousin speak Korean? Are the boy and girl siblings?

    Don't worry, I won't get too personal those are all the questions I have.

    Is USA your adopted home, Evgenya?

    Seeing as that we're on the subject of Koreans;
    I drove through my home town yesterday. When I lived there eleven years ago, it was an Arabic neighbourhood. Though there's always been alot of Asians too. Now it is straight out Korean and Chinese-Vietnamese. The Arabs are still many, definitely, but its no longer 'their hood' . The non-Korean signs are in Chinese. My friend who still lives there says that they're from a Chinese-speaking part of Vietnam, where the people consider themselves not as Vietnamese so much as Chinese. I don't know how correct my freind is about their Vietnamese-ness, because there weren't any Vietnamese signs. I can't actually read what the signs say, though.
    Its now hard to pick out someone with light blonde or red hair and freckles. There'd be some around, undoubtedly. The rest of the district is still Arabic, though.
    Next time I pass through, I think I'll make a point of checking how many shop signs are in English. English alone, I mean. Not as subtitles to the Korean and Chinese. Hhhmm!


    What is that term about population flow and distribution? The term which describes communities 'changing hands'? I mean in the natural, non-government, non-mafia sense.

    Unfortunately though, I do actually know of a couple stores' deceased-ness being products of Asian stand-overs. Very sad, and really en-angering. I remember my mum telling me about how sad the Greek barber was, and how he "couldn't tell" her why he was going out of business. I also remember how passionate the owner of the age-old local plant nursery was about his plants. He was so interested in what he did. He came to life when someone (ie. me) showed interest in his plants and how he took care of them. He got stood-over. His life was threatened. And his store would be damaged in a new place each time I passed it. I makes me understand the urge people have for vengeance, when I see things like that happen to innocent and nice people. I actually remember "wanting to get them!". But there's not alot one can do in such circumstances, except but have dignified tears and get on with living your life the right way.
    (Wow, my post became emotional).
