New Adoption Films Attract Interest

Airing on PBS stations in the next few weeks are three films about adoption. Two are about international adoption, and one is about a young girl adopted in New York.  All deal with the issues of identity that are so poignant for adoptees.

Check your local PBS stations for information on when these will be aired in your area.  To view the trailers, please click on the following:

Wo Ai Ni (I love you) Mommy

What is it like to be torn from your Chinese foster family, put on a plane with strangers and wake up in a new country, family and culture? Stephanie Wang-Breal’s Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy is the story of Fang Sui Yong, an 8-year-old orphan, and the Sadowskys, the Long Island Jewish family that travels to China to adopt her.

Off and Running

Avery is one of three children adopted by a white Jewish lesbian couple in Brooklyn, New York. Though it may not look typical, Avery’s household is like most American homes — until Avery writes to her birth mother and the response throws her into crisis.

In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee (sequel to “First Person Plural”)

Her passport said she was Cha Jung Hee. She knew she was not. So began a 40-year deception for a Korean adoptee who came to the United States in 1966. Told to keep her true identity secret from her new American family, the 8-year-old girl quickly forgot she had ever been anyone else. But why had her identity been switched? And who was the real Cha Jung Hee?
