Wo Ai Ni Mommy (I Love You, Mommy)

Wo Ai Ni Mommy (I Love You, Mommy)

Join Filmmaker Stephanie Wang-Breal for a screening of her critically acclaimed documentary, WO AI NI MOMMY (I LOVE YOU, MOMMY). Copies of her DVD will be available for purchase.

From 2000-2008, China was the leading country for U.S. international adoptions. There are now approximately 70,000 Chinese children being raised in the United States. Wo Ai Ni Mommy explores what happens when an older Chinese girl is adopted into an American family. This film reveals the complicated gains and losses that are an inherent aspect of international, transracial adoption.

In 2007 Donna and Jeff Sadowsky of Long Island, New York submitted their dossier to adopt eight-year old Fang Sui Yong from Guangzhou, China. From the very first moment Sui Yong meets her new mother, Donna, we get a real sense of the emotional confusion and loss Sui Yong experiences, as adoption workers translate their first words of communication.
