So Many Clothes?
an article written by Joshua Zhong, Co-Founder and President of Chinese
Children Charities (of which my adoption agency, CCAI, is a part)
American adoptive parents are sometimes admonished on the streets of China by well-meaning older women, whose advice is usually given in Chinese. Parents warn future travelers of these sweet women with the tongue-in-cheek designation of "the baby police". When going out, the advice is to carry a thin blanket with you to cover the baby and thus remain unnoticed.
