A Fascinating biographical story of the heroines, adoptees from South Korea, twin sisters Vance, and their quest for the truth behind their dubious adoption story. A gripping two week root travel of personal exploration with shocking, yet poignant and sincere, revelations of the truth behind the industry… A must read for everyone caring about international human rights.
