We have not used real names to protect the identity of the American woman’s adopted daughter and for the Chinese parent’s safety.
I read her stories like “I Love You Like Crazy Cakes” about a girl who was adopted from China.
We host play dates with several other neighboring families with children from China.
I contacted a man named Brian Stuy, who founded Research-China.org, which helps adoptive families look for the birthplaces of their children.
The information made me double my effort to find her birth parents.
