BELLA L. SIEGEL-DALTON
Ji Soon Lee was born in late 1961 in Donducheon, Korea to a Korean Native (Chong Hui Yi) and an American GI (Irvin Rogers). She was named Bella when she was adopted in 1966 to a family in California.
Bella is active in the Korean Adoptee Community, specializing in birth family searches and speaking on and advocating for DNA Testing for Amerasians searching for birth families. A proud Veteran of the United States Coast Guard, she has also managed hotels across the country and was a Fleet Planner for Chipman Relocations, an Agent for United Vanlines for 15 years.
She and her husband of 32 years have 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren. After a 3-year DNA search, she successfully found her birth father who unfortunately passed away in 2010. She has 6 paternal half siblings and was told that her father knew about her and tried to find her, unsuccessfully. She also has a half sister via her mother's side who was sent for adoption. And has found, again thru DNA, another half sister who was raised by their Korean mother who passed in 2004 and is buried in the United States.
