Toby's adoptive parents, Mike and Deborah, have never met Kim Jae-su—until now! Kim Jae-su came all the way to Chicago to see his son again and meet the couple who raised him. "I want to thank them very much for raising him so well, remarkably."

Kim Jae-su says the reunion wouldn't have been possible if it hadn't been for a friend who was watching Toby during the Olympics. "He said he saw [Toby] in the newspaper, and he said he looked like me," Kim Jae-su says, with the help of a translator. "And also he said he looked like his younger brother as well, so that's why [I found him]."

Deborah says finding Toby's biological father was a dream come true. "[Toby's] dream was always to go to the Olympics," she says. "My secret dream inside was that through the Olympics, [with] how they always portrayed the athletes and told about their background ... he would find his birth family."
