Kang Han continued, “In middle and high school, I blamed them thinking, ‘Why did they throw me out?’, but that thought went away as I triedto find living on my own. I’m actually grateful to my parents.They could’ve chosen abortion but they didn’t… And I was also born with greatphysical characteristics.”
