Summary
In the thirty-five years since China instituted its One-Child Policy, 120,000 children -- mostly girls -- have left China through international adoption, including 85,000 to the United States. It is generally assumed that this diaspora is the result of China's approach to population control, but there is also the underlying belief that the majority of adoptees are daughters because the One-Child Policy often collides with the traditional preference for a son. While there is some truth to this, it does not tell the full story-- a story with deep personal resonance to Kay Ann Johnson, a China scholar and mother to an adopted Chinese daughter
