Two Documentaries about Chinese adoption – “Found in China” and “Long Wait for Home”

A new documentary about Chinese adoptees. From the official website:

“Found in China,”
a documentary by Tai-Kai Productions, follows a group of six Midwestern
families and their 9- to 13-year adopted Chinese daughters who climb
the Wall, taste the tea, visit their orphanages and the people who once
held them–all the while surviving the emotional and psychological
demands of such a heritage trip.

From the website for "Long Wait for Home":

Despite a surge in media coverage of adoptions from China, there are many unanswered questions: Who are the birth parents and under what circumstances do they decide to give away their babies? How do children end up in orphanages and what kinds of lives do they live there? Moreover, with so many “foreigners” going to China to pick up these Chinese babies, what do the average Chinese people feel and think about Americans and international adoption?

To answer these questions, Dr. Changfu Chang and his team present the widely anticipated documentary, Long Wait For Home. For the first time, we sit face to face with birth parents who share with us the hard decisions they have made and the emotional toll they have suffered; we go to orphanages and take an intimate  look at the living conditions of children usually inaccessible to film crews; we also converse with a wide range of ordinary Chinese citizens and scholars
on the subject of international adoption.
