About the Book

Lee Phillips couldn’t ignore a headline in the South China Morning Post that read “Children condemned to Die.” Much to her horror, the article detailed the conditions of Chinese orphanages where abandoned children often ended up in “dying rooms.” For Phillips, it was a call to action. She ventured to the Chinese city of Zhaoquing, where she climbed the stairs of a prison like, cement building. On the fourth floor, she entered a world unlike any other. The orphanage smelled of urine and feces. The eyes of the abandoned children haunted Phillips. But one child touched her heart more than the others. A girl named Yu Yan. Phillips was determined to adopt her. For Phillips and the girl, the odyssey was just the beginning.
