Kim Sook-nyeon, 69, lives in a cozy apartment in Seoul with her son. His name is Layne Fostervold. And he’s an American who grew up in Willmar, Minnesota.
Fostervold was adopted when he was about 2 years old and says he had a good childhood. But he couldn’t shake the questions he had about his biological mother back in South Korea.
“I always felt my mom tried to keep me for a while or was trying to make it work,” he says. “And then for whatever reason [it didn’t work], but I felt like for my entire life she really wanted to keep me.”
