This LA Times article is about Chinese families who had their babies seized from them and put up for adoption. Here’s how the story ends:
In Philadelphia, Wendy Mailman, who adopted in 2005 from the orphanage in Zhenyuan that took in confiscated babies, now questions everything she was told about the girl who orphanage officials said was born in September and abandoned in January.
“Why would a mother who didn’t want a baby girl be so heartless as to wait until the dead of winter to abandon her?” she said.
She wonders what she would do if she discovered that her daughter was one of the stolen babies. She knows she could never return the Americanized 6-year-old, who is obsessed with “SpongeBob” and hates the Chinese culture classes her mother enrolled her in. But she said, “I would certainly want to tell the birth family that your daughter is alive and happy and maybe send a picture.”
“It would be up to my daughter later if she wanted to build a relationship,” she said.
Good thing the kid hates the Chinese culture classes.
