From the Lost Daughters website…

Last night, a spirited collective of artists gathered together to bring the Living Loud DC event to life. And bring it to life they did. Nine incredible authors, 8 from lost daughters, delivered pieces from four different works (some published some never before read/heard) against the backdrop of the gorgeous Busboys and Poets (5th & K location) surrounded by the energizing sounds of Superior Cling, woven and connected by emcee Kevin Haebeom Vollmers, and powerfully introduced by Ambassador Susan Jacobs. We wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who brought this event together–and to provide links for anyone wanting to learn more about someone or something they saw at Living Loud DC.

Thank you to Kevin Haebeom Vollmers who initiated, connected, and planned this event, and for lending his humorous and captivating emcee skills.
Thank you to our partners for making the event possible, the Barker Foundation, Korean Focus, and Land of Gazillion Adoptees.
Thank you to Ambassador Susan Jacobs for your powerful introduction to this event and for valuing and supporting adoptee voices. Thank you to Kathy Sacco, Special Assistant to Special Advisor for Children’s Issues, for your help and support.
