Dear Sally's family in China,
We have been searching for you for the past 11 years. It was not long after I held my daughter for the first time that the feeling of her mother flooded my heart. I could feel you through Sally. Despite the distance between us, you remained close to us all these years.
Sally is a beautiful, loving person. She is an absolute blessing in our lives and I can't imagine a life without her. We love her so much. I have always raised Sally to understand the many circumstances that caused children to be separated from their family. She has never been angry or upset with her family. I want to thank you for bringing her into this world and for making sure she made it safely into the orphanage.
We hope we can finally be reunited with you. She deserves you in her life and you deserve to also know her.
Cathy and Terry
Dear mother and father in China,
My name is Sally. I live in Canada now. I have an adoptive mother, father and an older brother. I also have 2 dogs and a cat.
I left China in 2006 at age 9 months and although I do not have any memories of you, I think about you often. My heart has never forgotten you. I wonder if I have any brothers and sisters? Are my grandparents still living? Are you safe and healthy? Do I look like you?
My parents said they will bring me back to China to meet you when we find you. We hope we can become one large family together. I will enjoy learning about the family and I am excited to tell you about my life.
I will keep wishing each day that we hear from you. I will never lose hope. Someday we will meet again and I hope it is very soon.
