Adoptive Families’ Quests To Trace Chinese Roots Often Meet Dead Ends

From Los Angeles Times:

My name is Haley. I was adopted in 1995. I now live in America. I enjoy singing and playing the violin and hanging out with my friends. I have a good life, but I would like to find my biological family.

Just minutes after Jeannie Butler and her adopted daughter, Haley, tacked a Chinese-language poster with this message to a wall in the Yangtze River village where she had been abandoned, a woman emerged from a restaurant next door and did a double-take.

The woman stared hard at Haley, 14, then at the baby photo on the poster.

“Oh, my gosh, she looks just like my cousin’s daughters!” she blurted out as an interpreter with the Butlers translated.
