In October of last year, after a series of depressing delays, the Russells contacted Americans for International Aid and Adoption, based in Michigan. Founded at the close of the Korean War, the AIAA specializes in placing abandoned children from Guatemala, Hong Kong, Korea and India. The Russells, with a long time in- terest in eastern culture and art, asked for a little girl from Korea. But there were to be more delays. When the AIAA re- quested the Russelis' home study sheet, a form showing their home's suitability for a foster child, the state clerk in charge of their case was away from her office. "Ironical- ly," said Mrs. Russell, "the lady was on maternity leave.

In February of 1981, ( the Russells decided to adopt. ..... and filled out the necessary state forms but it wasn't until (;i June 9, 1983, that six-year- old Courtney Bo arrived ,:, from Korea to her new parents. Doreen, co-owner of Ming's, an oriental antique shop, described the lengthy, and at times, frustrating adoption process. "The state approved our 'application because we'd been foster parents before. But then things got bogged down." The Russells were told that since they had asked for a school-aged child, their re- quest would be quickly filled. Pine Lake students honored Pine Lake Junior High School students and staff distributed honors for academic achievement in many areas and presented special awards to outstanding students in their last assem- bly on 'June 16. Students and staff also gave special recog- nition to band instructor Bob Yetter, who is retiring this year.

This year's straight-A students are Lisette Lambregts, David Pietromonaco and Katherine Shimada. The names of these students are inscribed on a permanently displayed pla- que in the school trophy case. Five students also received awards from the staff. Steve Anderson and Michelle Frack were selected as Boy and Girl of the Year. Mindy Layman and Erik Bloom- quist were chosen as inspira- tional winners. The annual service award went to Laura Jones.

Bo had been abandoned in April of 1982 and was placed in a foster home. She was still there when the Russells arriv- ed, but they couldn't meet her until she'd been officially released by the Korean government. After making the proper arrangements, the Russells returned to the United States to wait for Bo. And wait they did. The Im- migration and Naturalization Service seemed to lose every- thing the Russells sent them and Bo's papers, which,were only to take a month of pro- cessing, took four. The Rus- sells even arranged to have a friend fly over to Korea and pick up their little girl, but the Korean government didn't make the deal official until one day after the friend Ill returned. But finally, in late April, the adoption was approved by all parties concerned and at noon, June 9, the Russells picked up Bo at SeaTac Air- port. Bo speaks little English but she is quick to learn and the Russeils have no doubts that she'll do well at Clark Ele- mentary next fall. The school has an English-as-a-second- language program which Bo will work through and she is already picking up bits of the language from her parents. "We sent her pictures of her new home and school," Mrs. Russell explained. "When I showed her around, she acted as though she was quite familiar with them. The kids in the Korean Adoption agency are all very well edu- cated and I think that'll help a lot when Courtney starts school."
