I just got hold of a copy of the New Yorker article about a reunion. What a
contrast to Who's Your Daddy!
I remember one adoptee wrote about it; has anyone else read it? Any comments?
I think I will make a copy of the article before I give back the magazine and
save it for my daughter. I had told her about Who's Your Daddy and she begged
to watch it. Watchng it made her very sad not to know anything about her
birthparents or exactly why they abandoned her (although of course we know the
historical and social situation in Chna). I did try to point out how cartoonish
it was, but seeing the birth mother show up at the end really did her in.
I could have kicked myself for telling her about it and letting her watch.
