All of our residents have so many amazing qualities and interesting characteristics. At Protected Harbor, we love how our residents to get to know each other as family. As supporters of Protected Harbor, you are all part of the family God has created as well. Therefore, each month we will be highlighting one of our Protected Harbor residents, and sharing interesting facts about each of them.
This month we are highlighting Kimber. When asked where she was born she replied, “Well technically I wasn’t born in the United States. I was born in South Korea. I moved here when I was two years old. Kimber was adopted when she was two by a couple that raised her to be the strong independent woman that she is today. Kimber said, “Without my parents, I would not be the woman that I am today.”
Here are some interesting facts about Kimber’s home country:
- Population: 51 million
- Capital: Seoul with 10 million inhabitants
- More than 95% of the population can read and write.
- More restaurants, including McDonald’s, will deliver food directly to your home
- In South Korea, babies are considered one-year-old at birth
- South Korea’s national dish is Kimchi (which happens to be Kimber’s favorite food!)
Because Kimber moved to the United States when she was so young, she does not have a recollection as to what South Korea was like. Although Kimber does not necessarily remember the details of her life there, she is very proud of her Korean heritage. She even has a large Korean flag hanging in her bedroom. She also recently took a DNA test to learn more about her heritage and the results showed that she was 97% Korean/Chinese and 3% Japanese.
Please join us in praying for Kimber’s continued success with Protected Harbor.
