Soon-Yi Previn was born in South Korea, reportedly on October 8, 1970.Her biological mother was reportedly a prostitute who would punish Soon-Yi by having her kneel in a doorway while her mother slammed the door on her head.During this time, several Asian countries experienced political and/or economic upheavals that resulted in the worsening of living conditions for many of their citizens, particularly poor, working class, or rural families.These events led many families in vulnerable circumstances to be more willing to give up their infants and young children to be adopted.Previn attended Marymount School of New York and Rider University.She studied Psychology at Drew University and earned a Master's degree in Special education at Columbia University.There can also be significant concerns about coupled with specific hurt feelings over the birthmother's choice to "reject" the child" to "give me away" or "not wanting me enough." Such hurtful and vulnerable feelings may be compounded should the child learn that the birthmother later had other children that she chose to raise herself.

One month before the South Vietnamese government fell to advancing North Vietnamese communist forces, "Operation Babylift" was approved by President Gerald Ford that would airlift 2,700 orphans out of Viet Nam to be adopted by families in the U. Many of these children were those who had lost their parents, were children of American GIs whose Vietnamese mothers had put them up for adoption, and/or were malnourished, sick, or disabled.This feeling of loss may be especially intense in closed or semi-open adoptions where little or no information or contact is available with birthparents.Such grief feelings including when they first learn of their adoption, during the turbulent teen years, upon the death of other family members, or even as when becoming a spouse or parent.Her parents and my biological father's parents agreed she would be sent away to have me.She birthed me in a sterile room, frightened, with no familiar faces and no compassion for her situation.
