To tell the stories of people whose lives have been invisibly tied to ours and to illuminate a small part of the hidden history of this era.”

Why Read the Book?
ADOPTIVE PARENTS: Readers who are adoptive parents of children from China, or China adoptees, will find a treasure trove of historical, political, social, and economic data in China’s Hidden Children – all of it wearing the very human faces of mothers, fathers and siblings caught in the net of a wildly inhumane and far-reaching social experiment: China’s One-Child Policy.
CHINA ADOPTEES: China’s Hidden Children answers more of the questions you’ve been living with all of your life (How could my birth parents give me up? Does my birth mother think of me? Does my birth country really hate girls?). Dr. Johnson and Wang
Liyao’s research in China bears witness to your history; it offers you a truthful possibility about your early life and a greater insight to the actions and emotions of your first parents.
