Korea Heritage Adult Adoptee Tour

At Dillon, we absolutely encourage every adoptee to go back to their land of birth at least once. For South Korea, we offer both a tour for adult adoptees and two family tours. Adult adoptees and their families are welcome on either tour.
This tour is created specifically for adult adoptees and their families.  Allowing for the tour to focus on adult activities and opportunities for adult adoptees to focus more on difference adoption experiences such as birth mother meeting, eastern children’s home and talk time with tour participants.
