Liu, you must know that I am having a child...but we cannot keep her.
The law is the the law, it was created to protect our citizens. One of our laws says we cannot keep this second child.
I will miss you and I pray that you live a good, long life
Mom invited me to her room and I did not expect the words that came out of her mouth.
My mother told me about the laws in China and how they are made to protect us. I wanted a sibling but I also did not want to cry. I didn't, I forced myself to accept this news.
My mother gave birth to a baby boy, she did not name him as she feared she would grow attached to him. I wasn't there at the hospital with Mom. I had mixed feelings about the birth and named him Juan.
