Gammage, Jeff

China Ghosts

My Daughter's Journey to America, My Passage to Fatherhood

illustrated ed

€ 17.95

Aching to expand from a couple to a family, Jeff Gammage--a reporter for the "Philadelphia Inquirer"--and his wife, Christine, embarked upon a journey that would carry them across a shifting landscape of emotion and through miles of red tape and bureaucratic protocol. On the other side of the world--in the smog-choked city of Changsha in Hunan Province--a silent, stoic little girl was waiting for them: Jin Yu, their new daughter. Now they would have to learn how to fully embrace a life altered beyond recognition by new concerns and responsibilities--and by a love unlike any they'd ever felt before. Alive with insight and feeling, "China Ghosts" is an eye-opening depiction of the foreign adoption process and a remarkable glimpse into a different culture. Most important, it is a poignant, heartfelt, and intensely intimate chronicle of the making of a family.
