Hello Eunyoung (and happy new Year by the way),
We have met during the Beaujaulais nouveau of the Alliance Francaise in Daegu.
And since you are connected with Daegu City, I thought you might be of some help in following matter :
I am a regular reader of a Germany-Korea internet Forum, and I just read a message from "Shuri Sama" on this thread :
Translated from German, this means basically that this poster, a German from Korean origin (adopted) actually travelling in Japan, is intending to pay a visit to his former orphanage in Daegu by the middle of January.
He asks therefore about information on how to find an orphanage called "White little baby home" in Daegu..
The name is probably an approximative translation from a Korean name, and it is not sure if the place still exists, but it would be nice to provide information if it still does.
I have tried to google about 고아원 in Daegu, but I am absolutely unable to orient myself with so many hangeuls...
So would it be possible for you to check this orphanage still exist and what would be the adress in Daegu ?
Thanks in advance.
Happy New Year to you too.
You are the one who is working at the Valeo and have two kids?
Your wife is a german, and we have met at the Dec. 21 party by the Allicance Francaise, right?
Sorry if my memory is not correct.
I talked to an officer of the children related division.
I found that the White Lily Orphanage was operated by the nunnery of St. Paul of Chartres and
this orphanage was transformed into a day care center in 1994.
The location is the same, which is located in the Namsan-dong, Jung-gu, center of the city.
Probably near the Nunnery of the St. Paul of Chartres.
Other than this, there is no other orphanage in the name of White something.
Since it is no longer an orphanage, it may be difficult to find detailed information about his adoption.
If we have the date of his adoption and his Korean name, it may be easier for me to get any information related to him.
I hope this will help him to find the place.
If you have more questions, please contact me any time.
Have a nice day.
PS. I just talked to Sister Theresa and she said he can visit the place any time.
