Birth Family Search
The number of overseas adoptees who unintentionally left Korea after the Korean War is estimated to be 167,547 by 2018, according to the statistics of the National Adoption Service. This is the official statistics of the government, but it is believed that the actual number is about 220,000 people. Overseas adoptees naturally want to find their roots as they get older. There are many ways to find their roots if they have accurate adoption records, but unfortunately, overseas adoptees who do not have accurate adoption records have a lot of difficulty finding their roots. Nevertheless, don’t let go of hope. Nest tries to make your dreams come true with the help of our many partners and resources.
Airport Pick-up Service

There are many foreigners visiting Korea, but overseas adoptees have different needs compare to them. Although they visit Korea with an interest in the country, they may have come to experience Korea, their roots.
