    So I was searching for ways to find out the regions my biological "family" came from via DNA testing. It's always strange to call or imagine I have another "family", other than the one that has been in my life since I was a baby. The family that has invested their time and love into my being.

    I stumbled upon this website and read an article about an adopted Asian female's perspective on dating -- which I found interesting.

    I've also noticed a lot of Americanized or adopted Asian females are mainly into white guys SIGH :'(

    Segments from an American Korean Adoptees Part 3 (Dating Inside and Out):

    "Growing up feeling more white than Asian, our attractions naturally leaned towards the cute boys we saw around us. It makes sense for a cultural whiteness to carry over in this way, but in doing so, it carries over all the same consequences of identity uncertainty. The same way many adoptees see themselves as just like everyone else, and wish-and often automatically expect-to be perceived that way, plenty of adoptees struggle to have members of the opposite sex like them for who they are, and not for their appearance.

    ...Rebecca [an adopted Asian female] guessed that she's attracted to white guys over Asian guys about 75% of the time. Caroline, an adoptee from Oklahoma, wrote that before traveling to Korea, she was only ever attracted to Caucasian men, because "there were no Asian men where I grew up." (Though now that she's in Korea, she "now only find[s] Korean men attractive.").

    "I wish I could wear a sign above my head," Rachel said, "that reads, I do not know kung fu, I don't eat fish, I don't know how to make sushi, I'm not a horrible driver, I have sex but I'm not a sex slave, I'm not submissive, I failed math, I don't speak any Asian language, please get to know me for me.'"

    You are who you believe you are whether others see it or not.

    Good for these women who don't feel the need to conform to expectations based on their appearance.
