40년 동안 살아온 미국에서 추방을 앞둔 입양인, 아담 크랩서. 그의 기구한 사연이 2015년 11월 ‘MBC 스페셜’ 방송을 통해 세상에 알려지면서 제작진에게 한 통의 전화가 걸려왔다. 학대받고 버림받고, 추방이라는 벼랑 끝에서도 항상 그리웠던 어머니, 아담이 그토록 찾았던 어머니였다. 

제작진은 어머니를 찾아 영주로 향했다. 40년 전, 남편은 집을 나가 버렸고 완전히 마비된 한쪽 다리로는 아이를 키울 수 없었다. 더 이상 아이들을 굶길 수 없어 잘 살라고 보냈는데.. 그간 아들에게 있었던 참담한 일들을 제작진에게 전해 들은 어머니는 한없이 목 놓아 울었다. 어머니를 찾게 되고 결국 한국으로 추방되어 돌아온 아담, 그에게 도대체 무슨 일이 있었던 걸까. 

“제 평생 아시아 중년 여성을 보면 우리 엄마가 저렇게 생겼을까, 또는 엄마일까 항상 궁금했어요. “

- 아담 크랩서 인터뷰 中 

■ 매질과 지하실 감옥, 그리고 파양

누나와 함께 미국으로 입양된 아담 크랩서, 믿었던 행복한 가정은 어디에도 없었다. 양부모의 학대는 끔찍했다. 숟가락이나 벨트로 맞은 날에는 집안의 큰 지하실에 갇혔다. 결국 첫 양부모로부터 파양을 당하고 크랩서 부부에게 입양됐지만 그를 기다린 건 더욱 가혹한 학대였다. 그들은 많게는 13명의 아이들을 키우기도 했다. 정부 보조금 때문이었다. 아이들은 그저 돈벌이의 수단이었다. 벨트로 때리고 못 박는 기계를 얼굴을 향해 쏘며 아이들의 공포를 즐겼다. 냉장고에는 늘 자물쇠가 채워져 있었다.

■ 입양될 때 가져온 물건을 찾다 전과자로..이웃집의 신고로 크랩서 부부는 아동학대 혐의로 재판을 받았고, 결국 아담은 16살에 집에서 쫓겨났다. 거리가 그의 집이 되었다. 쓰레기통에 버려진 치즈 버거를 먹으며 허기를 달랠 때도 있었다. 2년간의 고된 생활 속에서도 아담은 크랩서 가에 두고 온 물건을 잊을 수가 없었다. 바로 입양될 때에 한국에서 가져온 고무신과 강아지 인형, 성경책이었다. 어느 날, 자신의 물건을 찾으러 몰래 크랩서 가에 들어갔던 아담은 중범죄인 ‘주택 침입죄’로 감옥에 가게 되었다. 자그마치 25개월이란 시간이었다.

■ 전과자에서 다시 추방자로

하지만 패배자로 살고 싶지 않았다. 온갖 종류의 아르바이트를 했다. 식당, 건축일, 조경일 등 닥치는 대로 일을 하며 살았다. 교도소에서 배운 기술로 이발소를 운영하기도 했다. 하지만 그는 떳떳하게 살아보고 싶었다. 합법적으로 입양되어 왔지만 시민권이 없었던 그는 불법 체류자 신분으로 살고 있었다. 18세 이전에 양부모가 시민권을 취득시켜줘야 했지만, 학대를 일삼았던 양부모들은 관심이 없었다. 결국 영주권을 신청했던 아담은 이전의 범죄 전력 때문에 추방재판을 받게 된 것이다.

■ 그리운 어머니

잘못된 입양, 억울하게 시작된 옥살이, 그로 인해 한없이 꼬여버린 인생. 지지리도 복 없던 그에게 더욱 간절했던 건 원망보다 그리움이었다. 머나먼 한국, 그 곳 어딘가에 살아계실지도 모를 엄마에 대한 그리움은 한국으로 추방될지도 모른다는 위기감에 더욱더 깊어졌다.

“한 번도 뵙지 못했지만 사랑해요. 아직 어머니가 너무 그리워요. 평생 어머니가 보고 싶었어요. 언젠가 다시 만날 수 있으면 좋겠어요. 기억해 주세요. 엄마. 제가 엄마 자식이라는 것을요. “

- 어머니의 아들. 신성혁.

■ 추방, 그리고 한국으로 돌아오다!

2016년 10월, 아담은 결국 한국으로 추방 명령을 받았다. 빈손으로 한국에 돌아온 아담. 그는 이제 어떻게 다시 시작해야만 할까.

Adam Crasper as a child. (Photo via Gazillion Voices Radio)

Last week, I wrote about Adam Crapser, an adult Korean American adoptee who as a child survived years of incredible physical, sexual, and emotional abuse committed by two separate foster families. As a lasting part of their abuse, neither set of foster parents completed Adam’s naturalization paperwork or have been willing to give him his adoption papers.
Consequently, for his entire adult life, Adam Crapser — now married with three children — has been forced to live as an undocumented American. On April 2nd, he faces a deportation hearing with Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE). ICE plans to deport Crapser — a Korean American adoptee — to Korea, the country of his birth but to which he has no ties.
My post on Adam’s story went amazingly viral last week and today, Adam’s plight was also covered by NBC News where advocate Kevin Vollmers says:
“It’s a travesty that the promise hasn’t been kept for individuals like Adam Crapser,” said Vollmers, “who in my mind is a victim of the inadequacies of the broken U.S. adoption system that doesn’t necessarily serve the individuals it says it cares about the most.”
Outraged, many readers have been asking what they can do to help Adam stay in America and receive documentation.

=BARBER ADAM CRAPSER;ADOPTED AT AGE3 TO AMERICA; DEPORTED TO KOREA AT AGE40

SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A South Korean man flown to the U.S. 37 years ago and adopted by an American couple at age 3 has been ordered deported back to a country that is completely alien to him.
"It is heartbreaking news," said Dae Joong (DJ) Yoon, executive director of the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium, who had been in contact with Adam Crapser. Crapser remains confined in an immigration detention center in Tacoma, Washington, pending his deportation.
Crapser waived an appeal during the hearing Monday because he is desperate to get out of detention, his attorney, Lori Walls, told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
He was so desperate that he was even willing to go to a country where he does not speak the language or know the culture.
"I'm sure he doesn't have any idea what he can do in Korea," Yoon said in a phone interview from his group's offices in Annandale Va.
Crapser's plight mirrors those of thousands of others who were brought to the U.S. but whose adoptive parents didn't secure green cards or U.S. citizenship for them. Yoon's group says an estimated 35,000 intercountry adoptees lack U. S. citizenship. It is backing legislation in Congress to address that.
Yoon said arrangements are being made for Crapser to get documents to enable him to fly to South Korea.
Seven years after Crapser and his older sister were adopted, their parents abandoned them. The foster care system separated Crapser, 10 at the time, from his sister.
The boy was housed at several foster and group homes. When Crapser was 12, he moved in with Thomas and Dolly Crapser, their biological son, two other adoptees and several foster children. There, he was physically abused, Crapser has said. In 1991, the couple was arrested on charges of physical child abuse, sexual abuse and rape. They denied the charges. Thomas Crapser's sentence included 90 days in jail, and his wife's three years of probation.
Federal immigration officials say they became aware of Crapser after he applied to renew his green card two years ago: his criminal convictions, ranging from burglary to assault, made him potentially deportable under immigration law. Crapser got into trouble with the law after he broke into his parents' home - it was, he said, to retrieve the Korean Bible and rubber shoes that came with him from the orphanage - and later it was for stealing cars and assaulting a roommate.
"He will be deported as soon as Immigration and Customs Enforcement makes the necessary arrangements," Walls said. "Adam, his family, and advocates are heartbroken at the outcome."

Adam Crapser is a loving father. He is also Korean-born American adoptee who has been subjected to and survived a failed adoption and extreme and sustained child abuse.
Now, the country that promised Adam a good family and a better life continues to punish him for its own failing systems. Like other immigrant families impacted by deportation and detention.
Adam has been unjustly detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on February 8, 2016. He is currently being held indefinitely at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington.

This is a follow-up of my April 8, 2015 HuffPost regarding the plight of Adam Crapser and the danger of deportation facing all internally adopted American citizens.
2016-02-23-1456245282-2310398-adamcrapserfamily.jpg
Adam was adopted from a Korean orphanage by U. S. citizen parents at the age of three. With the promise of being placed in a safe and loving home and a better life. Instead, he faced chronic and severe child abuse and neglect from two sets of adoptive parents. To compound this, both sets of adoptive parents and the State of Oregon failed to fulfill their responsibility to naturalize Adam. Because of theirfailure, Adam, now 40, is being held in a detention center and faces the possibility of being deported to a country, or understand the culture.
Adam and his family deserve to live with dignity and support. All adoptees deserve to be raised in nurturing and loving families. All survivors of childhood violence deserve compassion and access to mental health services. 
Instead, he is being deported for the failure of those who handled his adoption when he was just a child!
ALL those internationally adopted into America face the same awful outcome.

If you have adopted internationally or know someone who has, please be sure that the adopters have secured citizenship for the children they have adopted. Many who adopt internationally are unaware that it is not done automatically, as well it should be.
The Korean adoption community is supporting Adam Crapser and the estimated 18,000 Korean American adoptees that do not have U.S. Citizenship, NAKASEC (the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium) launched an Adoptee Rights Campaign.
NAKASEC and Adoptee Rights Campaign have established the following ways you can support Adam by taking any or all of these four actions:

1)      Sign a petition in support of Adam being immediately released from detention and removed from deportation proceedings.
2)      Write a letter to the immigration judge at the Tacoma Detention Center urging for Adam’s immediate release. Please send letters to adopteedefense@gmail.com. These letters will be delivered by Adam’s attorney.  If you know Adam personally, please indicate that on your letter. Talking points for your letter can be found at this dropbox link.

3)      If you are a member of an organization or congregation, please ask them to write a letter to the immigration judge at Tacoma Detention Center urging Adam’s immediate release. Please send letters to adopteedefense@gmail.com.  Talking points for your letter can be found at this dropbox link.

4)      Donate to the Adoptee Defense Fund to cover the legal and counseling fees for Adam and adoptees similarly in harms way.

Adam-Crapser.jpg
Adam Crapser, a Korean American adoptee who was placed in deportation proceedings at the beginning of 2015, was placed in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma Washington by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on February 8, 2016.
Adam was adopted from a Korean orphanage by U.S. citizen parents at age three, relinquished by these parents to the state of Oregon at age nine and then adopted again by a second set of U.S. citizen parents one year later.  Both his adoptive parents and the state of Oregon failed in to fulfill their responsibility to naturalize Adam. Because of their failure Adam, now 40, is being held in a detention center and faces the possibility of being deported to a country that is no longer his home – he does not speak the language, remember the country, or understand the culture.
The adoption agencies and the federal and state governments failed to place Adam in a safe and loving environment and Adam is a survivor of extreme and sustained childhood violence. Both sets of his adoptive parents physically and emotionally abused Adam. The second adoptive parents, Thomas and Dolly Crapser, consistently choked, beat and burned Adam; the physical, emotional and sexual abuse of Adam and his foster siblings was so severe the Crapsers served jail time for 11 counts of child abuse. Despite this traumatic childhood, Adam never had access to mental health services until the fall of 2015. Diagnosed with complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which involves years of steady treatment to recover, treatment is being withheld from Adam while he is in detention.
Despite the odds, Adam obtained his GED and became a professional barber and loving father. He was a stay at home dad for his three daughters who depend on him; the immigration system has failed Adam and separated him from his family. Adam is an American and deserves a second chance to have a healthy life.
The country that promised Adam a family and better life is punishing him for its own failing systems. America has failed Adam and should give him the second chance he deserves. We are calling for his immediate release from detention and a cancellation of the deportation order against him.
To support Adam and the estimated 18,000 Korean American adoptees that do not have U.S. Citizenship, NAKASEC (National Korean American Service & Education Consortium) launched an Adoptee Rights Campaign (ARC).
To help Adam Crapser, contributor of The “Unknown” Culture Club: Korean Adoptees Then and Now, buy a copy and $5.00 will go to help his wife and three children.  Email info@vancetwins.com after purchasing the book and write *Adam Crapser* on the subject line.

Terri is survived by her husband of 45 years, Doug; their daughter, Lindsay Ladenburg; son-in-law Michael Ladenburg; twin granddaughters Ella Jean and Reese Kimball Ladenburg; and sister Sheila Greer.

Terri entered the world in Iowa City to Ellen and George Greer. Moving to the Northwest in 1965, Terri graduated from Newport High in Bellevue in 1968. After spending a semester at Mississippi State College for Women, Terri married Doug in 1969. They were soon separated by the army but after 17 months, Doug returned from Vietnam and they traveled throughout Europe for four months.

Terri graduated from the UW in 1975 and received her Master's in 1982. Both degrees were in Nutrition Science. Terri had a long career, mostly in social services and the government. She worked five years for Seattle-King County Public Health, eventually as Regional Interim Director. From 1996 to 2000 she worked for Senior Services of King County as Deputy Director and then Acting CEO. From 2001 to 2006 she was Executive Director of the Domestic Abuse Women's Network in South King County. She returned to the City of Seattle as Director of the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention Division from 2006 to 2011. Before her death she spent the last two years working as Program Director for Project Respect at the Center for Children and Youth Justice in Seattle. Terri had a passion for helping the vulnerable in society, particularly women and children.

Terri and Doug moved to Ravenna in 1975 where their daughter was born in 1976. They lived in the same house for 39 years. She loved her neighborhood and especially the annual parties at Christmas time. Her neighbors were always her extended family. Terri was an avid exerciser, gardener, reader, and social activist. She also loved spending time at their property on Vashon Island. Her sports passion was soccer which she played and coached for many years.

Since 2003 Terri was blessed with a wonderful son-in-law, Michael Ladenburg. Lindsay and Mike made Terri a happy grandmother in 2009 with twin girls. Terri and her husband spent many weeks and months the past 5 years in Houston with the Ladenburg family and their friendly Texas neighbors.

An open celebration of Terri's life will be held June 1. Remembrances in her name may be made to Youth Care, CCYJ, Stolen Youth, and DAWN.

police warn about storage unit break-ins at apartment complex parking garages;

police are warning apartment complexes about the safety of their parking garages after a series of storage unit break-ins.
4 people have been arrested in recent weeks, police said. Investigators believe all of the suspects are homeless.
The first two arrests happened January 2nd right when an alert employee at an apartment complex in the 8100 block of 161st Avenue Northeast reported several car break-ins and noticed someone was living in a storage room inside the complex’s parking garage, police said.
Police believe the man and woman that broke in were using the lockers to store personal belongings that they had stolen from cars at several parking garages in Downtown Redmond and in Microsoft building garages in the Overlake area.
Corbin Crosby works nearby.
"The first I’ve heard about it. It’s crazy, I guess. But just because it has been so cold… I do see why," he said.
Less than a week later, police arrested a 28-year-old man at another apartment complex across from Redmond City Hall after he broke into a tenant’s storage unit & was caught sleeping on the floor, police said.
He had several stolen belongings with him, police added.
2 days later, employees caught another man breaking into storage units at the same complex.
After being released from jail, officers arrested the man again on January 13th when a contractor found him sleeping inside a business blocks away, police said. Investigators believe he had broken into the business.
During the course of their investigation, officers learned several other businesses in the same building had been hit. A hole was left behind in one of the walls.
"Kind of concerning how people could get in them," Crosby said. "I think that’s something that should definitely be addressed."
One of the suspects arrested is scheduled to be arraigned on burglary and drug charges on Tuesday, January 25. He's had several run-ins with the law dating back to 2009, prosecutors said.
