Cynthia Gordon-Burns was born in 1965 in Paju near the DMZ and adopted in 1967. She grew up in CT in an adoptive home that provided unconditional love and support. Her parents, Roy and Annette, as well as her adoptive brother, Glenn, have always given her the room to be herself. After a 5 year career in Interior Design, Cyndy returned to school to get a teaching degree and certification. She taught middle school social studies for 11 years. In 2011, she took a leave of absence to figure out what she wanted to do when she grew up. She currently works for Wells Fargo in CT. She lives in Woodbridge with her husband Paul and her son Zachary. Some of her story was covered by CBS News (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/a-womans-life-long-quest-to-track-down-her-biological-mother/), but you can hear the rest of it here! She is also the admin of the Connecticut Korean Adoptee group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/144268429078137/), so if you’re in the area, you can link up with them and request permission to join their group!
