Adoptee Kara Bos’s search for her roots in South Korea

In the first verdict of its kind, a South Korean court found that a woman adopted by an American couple almost four decades ago must be recognised as the daughter of an 85-year-old South Korean man.

The ruling provides hope for the thousands of Korean-born adoptees who want to know the identities of their birth parents.

But for Kara Bos, the adoptee who brought the case, it’s been a painful struggle that is still not over.
