Any memories and additional information about your family background is helpful as well. If you have not searched yet, simply write NONE.

Other medication allergies or food allergies
Please list any other food and/or medication allergies we need to be aware of. Please also list if you have any medication and/or the type of reaction you have when exposed to the food(s) or medication(s).
Do you suffer from any of the following? Please indicate if you suffer from any of the following. Indicating "YES" will not necessarily disqualify you. A letter from your health care provider may be requested to certify your condition is stable and non-life threatening as the First Trip Home program can be emotionally exhausting. We do not want to put you into a compromised position.
It's important for us know how well you speak English, since most of our staff as well as our volunteers communicate mainly in Korean or English. If you have difficulty with English we would like to know it so we can enlist people who can speak your language of choice.
