ADOPT YOUR DESTINY
Choose to be radiant no matter
where you were born, who you were raised with,
or where you live
When two worlds become one:
You are born a complete, whole, and wonderful human being
And different is the new normal
Hi, I'm Karin Roest!
I'm a Korean American adoptee who struggled for most of my life. I was raised with 5 adopted siblings and didn't know if I was loved. In order to feel like I was good enough... I studied harder, worked harder, partied too much, ate too much, picked the wrong friends... and hated looking at myself in the mirror way too often.
But then... I started traveling. I didn't stop for 15 years. I didn't always know where I was going, but I knew there had to be more to life than what I had lived so far.
As I galavanted around to 40+ countries, something surprising happened.
Strangers around the world invited me into their homes and hearts without questioning who I was, where I came from, or where I was raised. They accepted me without reason. They became catalysts to make me feel loved which lit up a path to learn how to love myself.
It was this unconditional generosity that helped open my eyes to appreciate the two families I was given, hone my skills to choose quality friends, make my well-being a priority, and how to turn any challenge into a success.
Now... it's your turn.
You don't have to accept an average life. Self-sabotage and doubt can be remnants of the past. Because at the end of the day,
no matter what challenges come your way... you are born to shine.
NOT STRANGERS, WE'RE FAMILY
Family can be the people who you grew up with, or it can be the people you choose. And it should always be people who respect you and accept you for who you are
Inspired by my experience as an adoptee and the resilience adoptees must have to rise above the complexities of our adoptions, together we can be sources of light, love, and happiness to the rest of the world
