This beautiful poem was left anonymously at Xinran’s foundation Mother Bridge of Love (a charity that reaches out to Chinese children all over the world in order to develop a connection between China and the West, and between adoptive culture and birth culture). It follows the connections a Chinese birth mother and a Western adoptive mother have to “their” child and “…offers a poignant and inspiring message to parents and children all over the world.” Barefoot Books*
