Made In China



I went to my dad,
and I asked him straight
out, “Was I ‘Made in
China’? What’s she
talking about?”

Made In China is the story of an adopted Chinese girl coping with two emotionally charged subjects; understanding her adoption and coping with sibling rivalry. Teased by her sister for having as much worth as their Chinese-made broom, she must now try to understand where she came from and feels the anxiety of whether she really belongs in her American family. Upset, she goes to her father who tells her how she came to be their child. Reassuringly, he says, "you're not made like a toy, you were made in China to give us joy." He also reminds her that "you are much more than what people say about you." The sisters embrace their differences, and each other, as she is reassured that "in all the wide world we couldn't love you more."
