“If a human being has a right to be born, there will not any more abandoned children. When people give up or lose children, how would be the feelings of the parents? Regardless the situation, we feel deep frustration about human being’s rights and emotional pains. However, God gave love as a special emotion, so the adoptees will have more chances to meet new parents. In fact, the child is an angel who God specially love, but the adopting parents would not know. In fact this is a kind of grasping bigger fortune than winning lotto.”




MPAK (Mission to Promote Adoption in Korea was founded in November 1999. This organization was established by Stephen C. Morrison (Korean Name: Choi, Seokchun), who was an adoptee to the US, loved by his step-parents, and wanted other adoptees to have their families. This organization was also established by the step-parents in Korea, who adopted their children and wished the children to grow up well in a society without prejudice.
