Did you know that American families have adopted over 70,000 Chinese children in the last 15 years?
Wo Ai Ni Mommy explores this new subculture of American families by following the Sadowsky family as they fly to Guangzhou, China to adopt eight-year old Fang Sui Yong (aka Faith Sadowsky). Through Faith's bright eyes we witness what it feels like to say goodbye to your birth culture and native country to embark upon a new life and family in America.
Thanks to the Sadowsky's courageousness, Wo Ai Ni Mommy gives us an honest look into the emotions and complications inherent in international, transracial adoption.
Although the film is complete, there's still so much work to be done. We want the issues raised in this documentary to live beyond the screening room and help spark discussion for all families, whether adoptive, transracial, transcultural, or immigrant. We want to provide the platform for these conversations to take place. We need your help to raise funds to create work sheets, study guides, classroom curriculums and audience engagement tools which we plan on freely sharing with the world through woainimommy.com.
Please help us take this film beyond the screening room!
