"How marvelous that in telling their own stories children can embrace their connections to many layers of people and places. Kids Like Me in China paves the way for parents and children to explore the layers of their own histories and identities. It is a playful, thoughtful and refreshingly accessible story."
--Sara Dorow, author of When You Were Born in China
"Now that our kids are getting older, they need to hear the voices of their peers, not just adults, as they figure out where they came from and why. Ying Ying is the first child adopted from China to tell her own story, and she does it very well indeed. On the difficult issues of abandonment and why one finds so many girls in Chinese orphanages, she combines a thoughtful, informed understanding with a kid's straightforward approach to explain clearly what parents so often struggle to discuss with their kids. This will be a great book for the China adoption community."
--Kay Johnson, professor of Asian studies and politics at Hampshire College and co-author of "Infant Abandonment and Adoption in China"
"We don't have to wait until children are adults to help them tell their own life stories. Kids Like Me in China is an inspiration for all adopted children to begin to tell us what they think and feel about the early chapters of their lives."
--Jane Brown, MSW, adoption educator
"Kids Like Me in China [is] quite simply tremendously important . . ., must reading for everyone eager to understand some of the deepest issues of adoption: connecting, belonging, and identity."
--Gail Steinberg, co-author of Inside Transracial Adoption
