She Is Mine
A War Orphans' Incredible Journey of Survival
Her father was an American serviceman, her mother a young Korean woman confused by the ravages of war. Abandoned at age four, nameless, homeless, and utterly alone, this child roamed the bleak, war-ravaged countryside of South Korea for three years and was finally left for dead. But The Creator had other plans and revealed them through the words, "She Is Mine."
Abandoned at the age of four to wander the war-torn Korean countryside, Stephanie Fast was persecuted and tortured because of her bi-racial ethnicity. After she was discarded and left to die on a garbage dump, a Swedish nurse miraculously rescued her. A few years later, Stephanie—covered with boils and dirt, lice infected, worm ridden, and cross-eyed from malnutrition—caught the attention of a childless American couple who visited the orphanage where she had been given shelter. Stephanie was so dead emotionally that she rejected compassionate love. However, the couple heard the Creator speak to their hearts: She is the one for you. The couple responded and adopted Stephanie. Stephanie Fast has been an internationally known public speaker who has impacted hundreds of thousands of lives with her compelling life story that began as an abandoned Korean War orphan. For the past few years she has focused her efforts on advocating for orphans around the globe. She lives in Oregon with her husband, Darryl, and to her great joy near their children and grandchildren.
