Mei-Ling Hopgood always knew she had been adopted -- hard to miss since she was Chinese and her Michigan parents Caucasian! During her happy childhood she never wondered much about her biological family. After graduating from college and becoming a journalist, a chance encounter with the nun who hand-delivered her from China into the arms of her adoptive parents opens a door into her past. Mei-Ling then has to ask herself whether she wants to learn about her biological family, whether she wants to meet them, and how close she's willing to get to the family she's never known and who gave her away.

While reading Mei-Ling's story, I appreciated her background in writing. A memoir relating someone's interesting story is so much more enjoyable when well-written. I questioned her seemingly rapid plunge into the arms of her Chinese family, in that I think if it were me I'd have been a mite more cautious initially.
