The journey begins with Janine’s first memory and continues through a maze of uncertainty, turmoil, and triumphs. During their childhood, the twins were left with the impression that they had been orphaned as newborns and found on a street” in 1972, which prompted their adoptions to the United States.

In 1984, the Vance Twins’ adoptive father sustained a permanent brain injury while hang gliding off of Dog Mountain. Before his seventh high altitude flight, he had forgotten to install the glider’s wing bolts and it collapsed in midair resulting in a one hundred foot drop into and through a mountain-side fir tree. As a result, he lost his career as a Boeing Engineer of 30+ years and many possessions including fourteen cars, properties, and the 4000 square foot family home he had built with his own two hands.
Starting at the age of twelve and upon entering junior high, the twins physically cared for their father, assisting him through physical, occupational, and speech therapy and nursing duties. The daily care they gave went on through high school surpassing their young adult lives. To read about their journey, click here.

The care given to the twins adoptive father has long surpassed high school and college years. The twins could not tolerate seeing him live in a nursing home, therefore Janine (and her loving husband) invited him to live with them. Janine encouraged her dad to take courses on writing and editing. As of today, Janine has given attentive daily care for more than thirty years. Time has flown by. It is hard for her to believe her daughters are already adults. Initially, the accident was deemed a family tragedy. After seeing all that he has accomplished since his injury, Mr. Vance now says it was “the best thing that could have happened” to him. To learn what helped him survive, click here.

The twins adoptive mother passed away from cancer in 1997. Soon after they discovered immigration cards and learned they were considered “illegal aliens.” When adoption agencies set up the overseas child welfare program, they did not require for their customers to apply for the citizenship of the children they obtained. This came as a shock to the twins and, for decades, many other people adopted who are now adults, including those adopted as early as the 1950s, are still stateless. If you would like to help reunite native families, the twins invite you to give a “Gift of Hope” for adopted people still searching for their families.

In this contemporary tale detailing a two week trip that explores intercountry adoption from South Korea, twin sisters naively travel to their birth city of Seoul in search of their Korean family. Little incidents along the way serve as a catalyst which lead them into a worldwide modern-day adoptee-rights movement seeking truth and transparency. For the Search for Mother Missing, visit here.

As a consequence, the Vance Twins volunteered years of time collecting, editing, promoting, and publishing the narratives of adopted people. Their adoptive father helped with the editing process and their adult children have helped with the polishing up of the books, which includes the formatting, cover design, and proofing. Their anthologies Adoptionland: From Orphans to Activists and The “Unknown” Culture Club: Korean Adoptees, Then and Now have ranked as international bestsellers on Amazon.
In the endeavor to protect local and global families from the crisis of adoption trafficking through education and support, the Vance Twins have donated much of their time and book profits to lay the foundation for Against Child Trafficking USA. They advocate for the investigative work of Against Child Trafficking based in Brussels Belgium.

Originally, Janine did not plan to be an author. In fact, writing was the last thing she ever wanted to do! During the entire time she resisted, but eventually persevered because (she suspects) the collective consciousness (or the Sacred Energy Life Force) had other plans. If you have fallen across this website, you are part of this bigger plan. After all, based on the Vance Twins experiences, there are no such thing as accidents. Rather, accidents are unplanned incidents—otherwise known as co-incidents—plans made by the universal collective compelling all of us to revert back to our true nature.

In 2007, Jenette noticed energy naturally flows through her hands and she could sense energy from others. She learned that working with this energy is called Reiki. She was then attuned by a practitioner from the direct lineage of Master Mikao Usui, the founder of the spiritual and complementary healing practice. The purpose is to clear away energy blockages. Clients have reported feeling more balanced, relaxed and their quality of life. This treatment is a non-invasive stress relieving method to manage pain, and improve clarity. Jenette personalizes treatments. Client report a decrease in stress and anxiety. She is also attuned to provide distant energy work for clients unable to see her locally. A Reiki treatment is like being enveloped in a “soul massage.”

The easiest way to meditate is by using a guide. Guided meditation is usually done with a recording. If someone is guiding you through the meditation process, there is no need for you to think about what to do next. It will be easier for you to focus if all you need to do is just listen to a voice.

One of the best things about guided meditation is that it is usually tailor-fitted to a certain goal you want to achieve. If you have trouble sleeping and you think guided meditation can help you, be sure to download a recording that is specifically designed to help people get a good night’s sleep.
