Just for fun, I checked out this definition of endangered species on my favorite website, Wikipedia, (or is that Craigslist?) and came up with this:
An endangered species is a population of organisms which is at risk of becoming extinct because it is either few in numbers, or threatened by changing environmental or predation parameters. (Check. This is me.) Only a few of the many species at risk of extinction actually make it to the lists and obtain legal protection. Many more species become extinct, or potentially will become extinct, without gaining public notice. (OH, you have to make it to a list.)I guess I am not an "Endangered Species" afterall.
But I still could become extinct without gaining public notice. Great.
As if it weren't already hard enough to fit in. Most adoptess know, you can't totally fit in among Koreans and you can't totally fit in among Americans. The only place you do really fit in, is with other Korean adoptees. So, I am happy for all those Korean kids who won't have to wonder if they are white, but I'm sad for me.
For more information on Korean adoptees please visit this rather accurate (from my point of view) Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_adoptee
