In 2005, my wife and I adopted our daughter from Hunan, China. We were(and are) perfectly aware that there would be a lot of questions forher (and us) to deal with as the years went by. Right now, at age 8,our daughter&#x27;s a pretty typical Canadian girl who knows that she wasborn in China and left outside a school, sent to an orphanage, raisedby a foster family and then adopted by us. She&#x27;s not expressed greatinterest in China, but we&#x27;re not going to be surprised if one day shedoes.<br><br>&#x22;Somewhere Between&#x22; was a documentary that we had to watch. It tracesthe journey of several now teenaged girls born in China but adopted byAmericans and raised in the United States. For us, there are some tugat your heart strings moments - especially the shot of the &#x22;adoptionroom&#x22; in Changsha, Hunan, where we first held our little girl. Thegirls whose stories are being told are remarkably eloquent about theirexperience and about the challenge of being in some ways torn betweentwo worlds - with Chinese skin but American culture. They respond indifferent ways to this, and it&#x27;s interesting to watch. The filmstresses the importance of having connections with other Chineseadoptees,and pulls no punches about the presence of racism (evensometimes benign racism) in society.<br><br>Most interesting is the story of Haley, who returns to China with heradoptive parents and - defying the odds - manages to track down herbirth family. The reunion was touching, but it left me with a lot ofquestions, especially wondering where the relationship goes from there?It was fascinating that, in her case at least, her father wanted tokeep her and it was her mother who actually abandoned her. That&#x27;s thereverse of what my perception of the situation is. In the midst of thefilm there are questions raised about whether international adoptionshould be allowed. I have no answer for that; I&#x27;m simply grateful tohave my daughter.<br><br>This is what I would describe as a &#x22;niche&#x22; film. It has a definiteaudience - the Chinese adoption community, if I can refer to myself andothers who have adopted from or who have been adopted from China, andtheir friends/family. Outside that community, this might be of limitedappeal. (8/10)

First, I want to say, I am not an adoptive parent, nor am I adoptedmyself. I have met someone who has adopted a girl from China, and amaware of the issues that the one child rule raises for girls in China.<br><br>Before this I saw a documentary, &#x22;National Geographic: China&#x27;s LostGirls&#x22; which I think is a great film to start with for understandingthe situation, before you become so involved in these personal stories.<br><br>I don&#x27;t believe only a certain type of person can enjoy this film, butI can see how it would help. I personally prefer dramatic socialdocumentaries instead of fictional dramas, because I feel like I amreally getting to know someone and what they have been through. When Icry, I am not crying because of a plausible emotional situation, but Iam crying tears for another person.<br><br>This film is incredibly moving. You hear what it is like to be anAmerican, raised by white parents as a Chinese born girl. You get tohear some of their tales of facing racism, and feeling like anoutsider, as well as how glad they are to have the loving family andopportunities they have as middle class adopted Americans.<br><br>You get to see one disabled girl get an opportunity to be adopted, aswell as the filmmaker&#x27;s video of when they adopted their daughter. Youcan see how terrifying it is to be a Chinese girl handed over to whiteparents, while at the same time seeing how much love these parents havefor their new little girls.<br><br>One girl wished to find her birth family, and was lucky enough to doso. It is an extremely moving situation when you get a glimpse of howmuch her birth family truly loves her.<br><br>This film raises questions that all adopted people have to askthemselves, about whether they want to learn their heritage and whatthat means to them. Certainly, everyone has to choose their own pathand what is important to them in life.<br><br>This film encapsulates what it is to be an American to me. It doesn&#x27;tmatter what you look like, or your language or where you were born. Itmatters that either you or your family or whomever made a choice foryou to be a part of a culture that has no rules or boundaries. Where weembrace our similarities and differences as people of this world. It&#x27;struly a beautiful idea, this nation, where we can come together and seewhere we came from and know wherever we go, we take this journeytogether.

There are plenty of tears shed on the screen and even more by the movietheater audience,myself included.The movie does a beautiful jobportraying the lives of the Chinese adoptees and the many challengesthey face.One thing that I took away from Somewhere Between is the needthe children shared in knowing about their heritage.For some it is adesire to perhaps visit the orphanage or village they came from or forothers it may be too track down their birth parents.The movie is anabsolute delight and will appeal to a wide range of movie-goers,butwill especially touch those in the adoption community who can relatefirst hand about the heartfelt journey of adoption.
