Grace was born in South Korea. At 3 years old, she was abandoned at the local market and orphaned. She immigrated to the US at 5, eventually end up in the foster care system and then adopted into a multi-racial family of almost 20 adopted children and white parents. Support Grace's work.
Her experiences as an immigrant, foster child, person of color in a very white community, and also her very difficult experience as an adoptee, influenced her narrative of self-rejection of her Asian identity. She was in constant pursuit of finding “white belonging” for over 25 years and never achieved it. But now she has created her own belonging and is inviting others to join in her community.
