Chung investigates the mysteries and complexities of her transracial adoption in this chronicle of unexpected family for anyone who has struggled to figure out where they belong.Nicole Chung was born severely premature, placed for adoption by her Korean parents, and raised by a white family in a sheltered Oregon town. She was told her biological parents had made the ultimate sacrifice in the hope of giving her a better life, that forever feeling slightly out of place was her fate as a transracial adoptee. But Nicole grew up facing prejudice her adoptive family couldn't see, and wondered if the story she'd been told was the whole truth. Here Chung tells of her search for the people who gave her up, and chronicles the repercussions of unearthing painful family secrets. -- adapted from jacket."What does it mean to lose your roots--within your culture, within your family--and what happens when you find them? Nicole Chung was born severely premature, placed for adoption by her Korean parents, and raised by a white family in a sheltered Oregon town. From childhood, she heard the story of her adoption as a comforting, prepackaged myth. She believed that her biological parents had made the ultimate sacrifice in the hope of giving her a better life, that forever feeling slightly out of place was her fate as a transracial adoptee. But as Nicole grew up--facing prejudice her adoptive family couldn't see, finding her identity as an Asian American and as a writer, becoming ever more curious about where she came from--she wondered if the story she'd been told was the whole truth. With warmth, candor, and startling insight, Nicole Chung tells of her search for the people who gave her up, which coincided with the birth of her own child. [This book] is a profound, moving chronicle of surprising connections and the repercussions of unearthing painful family secrets--vital reading for anyone who has ever struggled to figure out where they belong."--Jacket.… (mais)

Ponderous, plainly written, some useful perspectives but i couldn't relate to her child centric traditional straight laced POV and the writing was uninspired and slow, it was a slog to get through, honestly ( )
  boredgames | May 12, 2021 |
Serviceable memoir about the impact of transracial adoption on a young woman of Korean descent who was raised by white parents. When the author goes looking for her birth parents, she unearths the disturbing secrets of her family of origin. A quick read, but padded with oddly selected details, much repetition, and too many rhetorical questions. ( )

I was so moved by the candor and compassion Chung had when sharing this painful and very personal story of the search for her biological family. It was beautifully written and the insights on motherhood, race and family were spot on. ( )

This is an unflinching glimpse at the complex nature of identity as a transracial adoptee. As someone who wants to adopt her children someday, I found a lot to chew on. This is an engaging and thought-provoking memoir. ( )

All You Can Ever Know is the story of Nicole Chung, born prematurely in the U.S. to Korean-immigrant parents and raised by a white couple in a predominantly white town in the Pacific Northwest. When she reached adulthood, Chung began to look for her birth family, and found a reality which both made her re-evaluate her sense of self but also her relationship with her adoptive parents. Chung’s writing is understated and often perceptive, but to be honest I found this book just a little bland. I don’t necessarily need to read about the highest of highs or the lowest of lows in a memoir, but I do hope to encounter some new way of seeing the world. I didn’t get that here. Poignant, but not profound. ( )
