Xinran used to run a radio program in China, sharing women's stories. She has since moved to London but has continued to share those stories via her books. This story is about the abandoned baby girls in China and the mothers who gave them up. It is sickening and heartwrenching and at times I just had to put in down and go watch my daughter of China sleeping peacefully in her bed. Even though there were times I didn't think I could handle reading any more, I wanted to know more. I want to be able to tell me daughter more. A lot of her research took place in the 80's and I just wanted to know more about what is going on now. A must read books for all adoptive parents of Chinese daughters.
