Because this sixth-born baby daughter was yet another girl, Mei-Ling's Taiwanese parents gave her away, essentially trading her in for an adopted boy. Lucky Mei-Ling. She got to come to America and be raised by wise and loving parents who provided her with a strong foundation and a healthy self-image.

How would life have been different had those birth parents not sent her off? Following her graduation from college thoroughly American Mei-Ling has an opportunity to find out. While she's never been interested in her beginnings, her birth parents suddenly begin looking for her? So begins this engaging memoir.
