US Olympic skier Toby Dawson holds a baby in his arms as his South Korean father Kim Jae-Soo looks on while visiting a local adoption agency, Holt International Children's Service, in Seoul.

Maggie Jones discusses her latest story in The New York Times Magazine, "Why A Generation of Adoptees Is Returning to South Korea." Jones profiles several adults who were born in South Korea, but do not speak Korean fluently and have no memories of the country, because they were part of the 200,000 Korean children who were adopted by families abroad over the past sixty years.
