All Those American-Adopted Chinese Girls

The New Beginning posts the trailer and some reviews "of that documentary about teen-aged girls from China who were adopted and raised by Americans" — Somewhere Between.

These 80,000 girls among us form an interesting "transcontinental subculture" as one review calls them. Of course, adoption, especially international adoption, is an imperfect solution to a pretty tragic set of circumstances, but these girls, at least from the trailer, seem pretty well-adjusted, a testimony to the liberality and generosity of our American suburban civilization. They're smart, pretty, and spunky, like any another All-American teenage girl next door. China's loss is our gain.
