In this episode, we delve into the incredible journey of Mika, who shares his heartfelt story of adoption from South Korea. Mika's adoptive parents, both from Amsterdam, faced the heartbreaking realization that they couldn't have biological children, leading them to take the courageous step of adopting a child. Mika takes us through his entire adoption journey, as each detail is crucial to understanding who he is and how he got to where he is today.

At just three years old, Mika was living in an orphanage, eating rice and sleeping on the floor with dozens of other children. But his life took a turn when he arrived in the Netherlands by plane, where a whole bedroom awaited him, and his new parents were eager to get to know him.

Mika recounts his experiences growing up, from his time in the orphanage where he had to navigate the complexities of a group of children who were not always kind to each other, to becoming comfortable with his new life at home and school. He shares the joys of making lifelong friends and the challenges of feeling different from his peers, such as not having any pictures
of himself as a baby.

As Mika enters puberty, he begins to question his biological family and wonders about their lives and if they are still alive. It takes him twenty years to summon the courage to embark on a journey to South Korea with the support of his fiancée. In the most intimate moments of his life, Mika takes us along as he discovers his past through the eyes of those who are truly his flesh and blood.

This powerful story is told over two parts: part one focusing on Mika's early memories of the orphanage, adjusting to his new life, growing up in the Netherlands, and his journey to explore the past. Part 2 explores how Mika's life turned upside down once he left the orphanage and returned to the Netherlands.
