Description

Chenyu came to Shanghai in pursuit of her dream. She bears the burden of single motherhood at such a young age, and yet her smile never falters. Chunyan came searching for her roots, after growing up in America with adopted parents. I wanted to help them both, so off we went; first in Shanghai, then later to Chenyu’s home in the mountains.

It would all be much simpler if I hadn’t fallen in love with them, and they with me. A bit convoluted, perhaps, but interesting stories and worthwhile relationships often are.
