First Korean Adoptee French Senator Elected

Jean-Vincent Placé(43)
A great news for Korean adoptees around the world. Jean-Vincent Placé, a Korean adoptee since he was 7, has been elected to the French Senate for the Green Party. He joined the Green Party in 2001, and rose up to the second highest place in the Party since then. Not only was he the first Korean adoptee to be a senator, but he was also the first Asian-French to be one. Congratulations! 

France has the highest number of Korean adoptees in Europe, around 12,000. 

For more, reahere.
