Letter of Love from China Synopsis:
The story is based on a Chinese birth mom in China who writes her daughter a letter explaining her love for her. She explains her reasons for daughter’s relinquishment which are due to poverty and the rule to keep families in China small due to overcrowding. Birth mom describes the beauty of scenic China and the Holidays of Chinese Moon Festival and Chinese New Year in the hopes her daughter will forever have a connection to her birth land of China. She prays for, meaning hoping for but not certain of, her daughter’s adoption by a loving family from a foreign land. Mom ends by using the moon as a mirror to envision each other’s faces in times of thinking of one another. She promises that birth family will always remember her.
