Photo by Chutian Metropolitan Daily -- When Jenna Cook went back to China at the age of 20 to search for her birth parents, she knew she was unlikely to succeed. What she didn't expect was that she would meet dozens of families who desperately hoped she was their lost child

Near a busy bus station in the Chinese city of Wuhan, on 24 March 1992, someone left a baby to be found. It’s quite likely that they watched and waited from a safe distance until the girl was spotted. She was picked up and taken to the Wuhan Children Welfare House, close by. There she was given a name, Xia Huasi, meaning “China’s”, and assigned a birth date chosen at random by the director of the home.
