National Geographic’s 2004 documentary following American families and their journey to China to adopt an abandoned baby girl is sure to tug at your heartstrings. Many of us are aware of the Chinese policy limiting families to just one child. Implemented in 1979, the Family Planning Policy called for all couples to have just one child. The only exceptions were for ethnic minorities and for rural couples whose first child is a girl. Over the decades, China has seen the effects of such a measure, some of which include forced abortions, abandoned babies, and an impending demographic disaster.
Watch the emotional film here or below.
China is now a rapidly aging nation with an increasingly smaller work force to support it. In the documentary, Lisa Ling spends time examining some of these consequences. She points out that in many Chinese schools, the vast majority of children are boys. One problem foreseen in the film was the likely competition between these boys in finding wives. There are currently 118 boys for every 100 Chinese girls. Ling also spoke with women who had aborted babies and those who paid the extremely high social compensation fee in order to keep their second child.
But in November 2013, China took a major step to relax this brutal policy, allowing for couples to have two children if one of them is an only child themselves. Maybe soon there will be a Chinese generation who will again know the joy of siblings.
