I am one of the 80,000 adoptees from China who currently live in the United States. I was born in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, China, and when I was two years old, I was abandoned and taken to the Nanjing Social Welfare Institute, where I stayed for a year. At three years of age, I was adopted and have lived in the United States ever since. I have had the good fortune to go back to China twice and plan on returning in the near future.
