Talking about adoption, birthparents, abandonment, race, and China with my kids. That's not all we talk about -- but reading this blog, you'll think it's all we do!!!!!
Here's the trailer for the film, Wo Ai Ni Mommy, the story of an 8-year-old girl adopted from China to the U.S. If you are interested in more information, you can join the Facebook page for the film.
HA! My chinese is so awesome I know that means I love you.That means I'm awesome! For some reason this movie scares me. Does it seem authentic or barfarific? I was afraid of the trailer... lol
What happened to the first comment?
The commenter asked me to delete it, so I did. I hated to do it, since I agreed with it, but if someone asks me, I do it. Consider yourself lucky if you were up early enough to read it before it was deleted!
I agreed as well. It is too bad because that voice was/is so necessary to the conversation. Well, I am glad to have read it!
At first I bristled at the mom's comment about being glad to be home where people speak English. I've heard that sentiment so much among travelling families and it bugs me. Then I thought, maybe the filmmakers are trying to show that the mom's relief at being back in the USA is mirrored in the daughter's pain at the loss of her culture and language.I'm interested to see the whole thing even though I expect it has more of those cringe-worthy moments.And why the mom-centric title? Argh. That stuff drives my husband and me nuts. Thanks for the link, Malinda.
