CPTV Airdate: TBA (Check Listings)

What is it like to be torn from your Chinese foster family, put on a plane with strangers and wake up in a new country, family and culture? Stephanie Wang-Breal’s “Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy” is the story of Fang Sui Yong, an eight-year-old orphan, and the Sadowskys, the Long Island Jewish family that travels to China to adopt her. Sui Yong is one of 70,000 Chinese children now being raised in the United States. Through her eyes, the viewers witness her struggle with a new identity as she transforms from a timid child into someone that no one — neither her new family nor she — could have imagined.
