mother en StoryCorps: A mother remembers meeting her adopted daughter <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Before Laurie </span>Brookner<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> adopted Kate, she knew her as only as a blown-up, photocopied photograph. On the photograph was a Chinese name: Yu </span>Mingren<span style="line-height: 1.5;">. Anxiously, Laurie traveled all the way to </span>Jiangsu<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> in China to adopt her. Soon </span>Mingren<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> became Kate. As Laurie held Kate in her arms, she was filled with utmost joy&mdash;mixed with a dash of sadness that her daughter would never know her Chinese birth mother. Fifteen years later, Kate and Laurie came to the </span>StoryCorps<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> booth at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. Kate wanted to ask her mom what it was like when she saw her for the first time.</span></p><p> Wed, 16 Oct 2013 00:10:31 +0000 Judy Silber 34496 at StoryCorps: A mother remembers meeting her adopted daughter Out In The Bay 1/24/13 <p>Interview with author Chana Wilson.</p> Fri, 25 Jan 2013 04:46:34 +0000 Marilyn Pittman & Marilyn 22186 at
