'I will take care of you forever'
Toronto woman goes to China for her adopted child
New mom is heartbroken for biological parents
After spending two years and $50,000 on unsuccessful fertility treatments, veteran journalist Wei CHEN, 38, and her husband of a decade, Michael POLLARD, 37, decided to adopt a baby from China.
Just two months after filing an application through Children's Bridge, one of four agencies licensed by Ontario's Ministry of Community, Family and Children's Services to carry out adoptions from China, they were matched with Yue Dong Liang. Their file was expedited because CHEN was born in Taiwan.
Last week, the couple flew to China, along with 22 other "C-Bridgers" to legally adopt the 11-month-old they have renamed Jensen in honour of CHEN's paternal grandfather.
It's cost them $25,000 to become parents; the tally includes travel expenses and a $4,000 (U.S.) donation to one of the many orphanages that house girls abandoned due to the one-child policy in a culture that treasures sons.
Upon arrival in Changsha, in south central China, the land of CHEN's father, their daughter is delivered to them a day earlier than expected. Here are excerpts from Toronto 1 anchor CHEN's diary:
Sunday, October 12
7 p.m. -- Dolton Hotel, 22nd floor conference room
There she was in her nanny's arms. She looked so forlorn and so teeny and fragile in her nubby cobalt blue sleeper. I reached out my arms to see if she would come to me. She reached up her tiny perfect hand and gently placed it on my mouth. She smelled like rice. I've held many babies over the years, including four nephews, but this was completely different.
I was sobbing uncontrollably, choking on my words as I tried to tell her who I was. I think the only words I was able to blurt out were, "I've waited so long for you. I'm your mom. I will take care of you forever."
I am so deliriously happy, so grateful and yet also heartbroken at the thought of what my gift cost someone else. I'll never know why her mother gave her up. She will never know the magnitude of her gift to me.
Jensen was quite stoic when we returned to our room. She looked around the room. She looked at us. She looked very unsure of things.
The hotel doctor said her laboured breathing and runny nose were just remnants of a cold, but it meant the first sleepless night of parenthood. We were up every hour or so after she went to sleep at 9 p.m.
I stroked her head. I rubbed her back. I pulled icky boogers from her nose. Even when she wasn't fussing I was up. I watched her sleep. I listened to her breathe.
Monday, October 13
6 a.m. -- Hotel restaurant
At breakfast we catch up with other families. Carla and Sean from Newfoundland got the brush off from their daughter last night. "Yup. It was the arms crossed, back straight as a board and I'll have nothing to do with you," said Sean.
3 p.m. -- Changsha Civil Affairs Office
More documents to sign. Our fingerprints are taken. The adoption is almost complete. I leave Michael to deal with the final portion -- the fees. Very out of character for me, but I did not grill him for details when he came back. It's awkward. People hear the word 'money' or 'donation' and will think that money changed hands after an exchange of goods, but the donations we make contribute to the care of other babies in the orphanage, and we pay fees to cover the government's administrative costs.
5: 30 p.m. -- Room 2411
I decide to feed Jensen some mashed banana. She scrunches up her face at first, and then reaches out for the spoon. I give her a crumb from a cracker and she giggles. Giggles. Pure joy!
She went into hysterics when I sang ba-na-nana (like Beethoven's Fifth). Then it was jumping up and down on the bed with daddy holding her hands in the air. This cannot be topped. Not ever! Not until the next thing she does.
Tuesday, October 14
2 a.m. -- Room 2411
We shot straight up in bed when we heard Jensen wailing. It was piercing and mournful. Her eyes weren't open. She was inconsolable. The tears streamed down her face, her tiny body trembling from the force of her cries. What caused this? Did she miss her nanny? Was this all too much for her?
I held her in my arms while Michael gently caressed her head. When she finally settled down, I placed her back in the crib. Jensen put her arm over her face, rubbing her sleeve across her nose, searching for a familiar scent. She then rolled across to the other side of the crib where we had placed the sleeper she was wearing when we received her. Her sobbing dissolved into tiny whimpers as she nestled her whole face into the sleeper, taking in every trace of her old smell, as if it were life-giving oxygen.
2 p.m. -- Room 2602
We went to our guide's room to pick up the adoption documents that were processed yesterday. They don't seem like much -- papers with red seals and Chinese writing -- these bits and pieces that comprise Jensen's history.
But one piece of paper devastated me: it was Jensen's birth note.
I knew when I read her file two months ago that she'd been found with a note attached to her, along with a bottle and some milk powder, I just didn't expect to see what I did -- the only thing written on the scrap of paper was 'born November 27, 2002.'
I could barely get the words out to my husband: "Her note, her birth note, it didn't even have anything personal," I cried. "Nothing. Not even: 'We loved her.'"
"Would that have been better?" Michael asks softly. "Would that have been any easier to read?"
Wednesday, October 15
9: 30 a.m. -- Sightseeing
Judging from the numbers at breakfast, there have to be hundreds of visitors here, all adopting babies from local orphanages. Our tour guide says locals have grown accustomed to this trend and welcome the foreigners, knowing they've come to give those children a home.
That may be true, but I have seen white couples being stared at, and comments made in Chinese that sound disdainful at best. I feel bad. Oh, I get my share of sniffs when I speak English and people assume I don't speak Chinese, or the odd "is that a Chinese baby?" (I always find that one amusing... either way, wouldn't it be?) Still, it reminds me how lucky I am that I may never have to deal with the type of reaction other (non-Asian) adoptive parents may face.
I was kind of disappointed when I first arrived, here and in Shanghai, because it seemed like anywhere else in the developed world. I was so looking forward to being transported to a different time; perhaps I romanticized too much about returning to my roots.
Walking along Nan King Road in Shanghai Sunday afternoon, I saw young people with dyed hair and piercings carrying bags of McDonald's takeout -- completely Westernized. It's quite ironic when you consider how much attention is focused on adoptive parents maintaining their Chinese child's heritage and culture.
Thursday, October 16
11 a.m. -- Yue Yang Social Welfare Institute
A two-hour bus ride north takes me to Jensen's orphanage. I had reservations about bringing her back here, so she and Michael stayed behind.
Once we get outside Changsha, rural China unfolds. These are the images I had in my head: rice paddies, stepped fields, oxen, leather-skinned locals carrying homemade baskets like a scale across their backs, cigarettes dangling from their lips. I know, it seems so stereotypical; I don't know why I was so eager to see that, I just know I was comforted having done so.
I scan the little faces of the orphans trying to discern if they're happy. They seemed to be. The cynic in me countered with a reminder that it was official "visiting" day and what I saw could've been a display. I parried that one with the fact that Jensen's behaviour is the best proof of care.
In the nursery I find two nannies cradling babies.
"Do you remember a Yue Dong Liang?" I ask eagerly in Mandarin.
"Oh, yes. I looked after her," says one and directs me to a pink crib that still has my daughter's name on it.
As my eyes focused on the pattern of the sheets in her crib, I suddenly realized why Jensen goes nowhere without the only toy I brought with me from Toronto - the little stuffed animal she clutches by the ear and snuggles with every night.
Here in the crib that was, until now, the only home she's ever known, was bedding with smiling pink bunny rabbits, like the one I gave her the night we met.
I miss her. Can't wait to get back to Changsha.
Friday, October 17
Midnight -- Jian Guo Hotel, Beijing
We're exhausted after travelling all day. Here in Beijing we'll complete the medical and paperwork to facilitate Jensen's immigration to Canada.
Saturday, October 18
8: 30 a.m. -- International SOS Clinic, Exam Room 2
Jensen didn't flinch when the nurse pricked her big toe for a blood test. She weighs 7.3 kg and is 168 cm long. Dr. Lucy CHEN is from Montreal. She told us that in terms of size Jensen is in the fifth percentile for her age. I'm disappointed since I'm used to hearing Friends talk about their babies being in the 95th percentile.
The doctor got me to hold Jensen while she rang bells on either side of her to test her hearing. I had to prevent myself from not signalling her one way or the other. I felt like it was a test and I wanted her to do well.
I walked out the office with a bounce in my step after Dr. CHEN pronounced her "a healthy little girl."
