I’m honored to have worked on this Al Jazeera documentary about China’s abandon daughters. It’s a documentary about a volunteer effort in China to reunite families, 40 more years after China first introduced the one-child policy. Many families in China gave away their babies after the first child to avoid harsh penalties. As Chinese families favor sons over daughters, most of the abandoned babies are females. This documentary shows a glimpse of life in China: the psychological struggle between reuniting with the blood-related family and be loyal to the adopted family.
