Abstract:
As most couples in China are limited to having only one child, the bias toward boys leaves many girl babies aborted or abandoned. Lisa Ling travels to China with some of the many American families who are adopting Chinese baby girls. In China, she examines the social pressures to have male children and the effects of the resulting gender imbalance.
