Yoo Kyung Il - My Brother's Blog

A short time prior to my visit to The Netherlands, my brother created a weblog. I was thrilled that he wanted to create and share his experiences on his very own blog. Once it was set, it sat and waited for our meeting. He wanted to begin his adventure from our initial beginnings-my arrival in Amsterdam. How special this made me feel. Now he can share with his family, friends, and everyone his story and of our two weeks together.  I am excited to see where this will take him. Only a couple months ago, I started a blog in hope to connect with other adoptees as well as my birth family and now I am introducing the blog of my brother from The Netherlands. I hope you can give his site a visit! His blog is called, yookyungil.

Hi Kyungmee,
visited your brothers site. Looks good. I wish you both all the best. BTW my name is Sanna and left an anon comment the other day. I am Korean and been living outside Korea for a long time. Although I don't have any adaption experience I came across Korean Adaption related blogs by chance and am following a few blogs.

Hi Kyungmee,

Yes you got my name correctly :-) I enjoyed your sheltersky. So lovely. What camera are you using? Recently I developed an interest in photography and try to learn more via blogs which is not easy. Anyway I spent many years in Hong Kong and London but currently live in Jakarta Indonesia. I go back to Seoul a few times a year as my parents are back in Seoul now. I can't see your contact on your blog. I live comments as anon but can you see my email address?

Hi Sanna. Wow, my brother, KyungIl's oldest brother in The Netherlands has a store where he purchases his furnature from there;) Small world in some way. Thank you for visiting sheltersky. I just started it in September;) Recently, some people have been emailing me asking what camera I y=use..funny? I carry with me all my cameras ..although the best of the best may take very clear photos and have more features..I love my other cameras too..and takes the right photos for me when I want them that the other won't do unless more prepared. Anyway, I use my Kodak Easyshare (I have two), Fuji S5000 (great camera with good exposure..a step up from snap and shoot)and my
Nikon D5000. All my photos are mixed. And I don't think you can tell which camera I used...most of the images;) Good luck!! My advise is to just go & take them and have your cameras always with you. You never know when you may have an idea or see something that you want to capture or give you an idea;) !! Good luck and have fun!!

Hi, Hyungmee!
Thank you for your comment on my blog :) You know, when I came to see your blog, my heart almost stopped...I have adopted my sister's baby when she died and the baby had a biological sister who is growing up in Japan....

And I always wonder many things... because life is filled with many twists..so reading your blog today gave me lots of smiles...I am hoping their journey will be like yours someday.

Thank you for sharing your journey...it is really incredible.

Warm wishes!
Nozomi
