L. Bloom was born in Sung-Nam, Korea. Adopted as an infant, like her brother, she grew up in a town an hour west of Boston. She’s got relatives in Brookline and Jerusalem, and close friends who are Korean- and Chinese-American. L. is Jewish and Asian, and at 24, she’s still figuring out where she belongs.

Listen to interviews with families who adopted girls from China.
