Adoption Documentary, Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy, to Air on WQED-TV
PITTSBURGH—Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy is the story of eight-year-old Chinese orphan, Fang Sui Yong, who is now one of the 70,000 adopted Chinese children being raised in the United States. Sui Yong, who used to be a veteran of orphanages and a Chinese foster family, was taken in by a Jewish family from Long Island.
Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy will premiere Tuesday, August 31, 2010 at 10:00 p.m. on WQED-TV. Throughout the documentary, the audience will join the Sadowskys on their journey to Guangzhou, China to adopt Sui Yong in this story about love, respect and family. It explores what happens when an older Chinese girl becomes a part of an American family. This film reveals the complicated gains and losses that are integral to international, trans-racial adoption through Fang Sui Yong. Language, habits, food, culture, and life will never be the same for the once orphan.
Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy is directed by Stephanie Wang-Breal and is a co-produced documentary by POV and American Documentary, Inc. The film won the 2010 Sterling Silver Award for Best U.S. Feature at the Discovery Channel Silverdocs Documentary Festival earlier this summer.
