Nicely done, quick read, well written -- a Valentine to his daughters, especially the first one, Jin Yu. This was interesting to read since I'd only been back from China with my daughter for two weeks at the time I read it. He fixates on his first daughter's past and his inability to find out anything to tell her, and finally comes to the conclusion that the questions are hers to ask and he will do the best with what they've got. We all have to come to grips with that.
Good information here on China's adoption program and why it is the way it is, and of course, most especially why most of the children are girls.
I recommend it to anyone going through the process, interested in the process, or touched by Chinese adoption in some way.
