Posted by: Christine (Hazel Wang) Boone Henney Date: January 09, 2001 at 11:47:32 of 705
My name is Christine Estelle Boone (Henney: married). I was adopted December 26, 1958 from Isabella Orphanage in Pusan, Korea. I was given a name of Hazel Wang (founder of Isabella orphanage) and a birth date of February 5, 1957. My papers that came with me have at the top, “Ho Juk Deung Bon (family registration)” on them. All of my adoption paperwork is through Seoul, Korea with the assistance of Holt Organization of World Vision. Please review the home page that I made with any paper work that came over with me at the time of my adoption. http://community-2.webtv.net/Chenney/ChristineEstelle/ This paperwork includes my registration papers, passport(visa), immunization records and pictures of me then and present. I was adopted to Howard City, Michigan, USA by Frank G. and Martha Ruth Boone. At the time of my adoption I was very ill, with pneumonia, during the flight and the nurse (Lois Cooper) had to stay several days in Oregon until I recuperated. Then we finished the flight to Michigan. I do believe that I left Korea sometime between Dec 26th and 29th of 1958. I am writing this letter in hopes to find any information or guidance in how I can find my biological parents. Please reply by e-mail with any assistance. Chenney@webtv.net
