Looking for Gu Cheng Qian and Gu Cheng Wen (intercountry adoption from China)
I am looking for the adoptive parents of Gu Cheng Qian, girl, whose finding ad says she was born on April 16, 2004 and found on June 8, 2004 at the home of Mr. Lu Xiande, Tianxi Village, Jiaoxi town, Zhenyuan county, Guizhou province. It this case, Mr. Lu Xiande is actually the Chinese father of the child. The other child is
Gu Cheng Wen, girl, born May 13, 2004 and found June 3, 2004 at the home of Mr. Li Daiwu, Chexi village, Jiaoxi town, Zhenyuan county, Guizhou province. In this case, I believe Mr. Li Daiwu is the cousin to the birth father, Mr. Li Zeji. Both children were probably adopted sometime in 2006-2007.
Here is some background about the 2 girls, as I learned from the original Zhenyuan story translated by Brian and from my recent conversation with the reporter.
Gu Cheng Qian is the daughter of Mr. Lu Xiande and his wife,
Yang Shuiying. She was their 5th child; she has 3 older sisters and one older brother. About a year after her brother was born, her father had a vasectomy but apparently, her mother was already 2 months pregnant with Qian. They live in a remote area, high in the mountains, in a small village of about 5 families. The reporter told me that they are the poorest family in their poor village. Sometime after Qian was taken, Mr. Lu attempted suicide by stabbing himself in the neck. He was saved by a family member. He has since "gone crazy." I asked the reporter if it was the seizure of his daughter that caused the suicide attempt and caused him to go crazy or was he just a bit crazy to begin with. It is her opinion that it was the seizure of his daughter that triggered the suicide attempt and his going crazy. Besides the obvious stress this has had on Mr. Lu and his wife, I realized that there are 4 older siblings. I am sure the above events have virtually destroyed any semblance of a normal childhood for them.
Gu Cheng Wen is the daughter of Mr. Li Zeji. At the time she was born, Gu Cheng Wen had 2 older sisters. Shortly after Wen was born, her parents went to Zhejiang province to work and took the 2 older girls. The parents left the one month old Wen, with the father's cousin, Mr. Li Daiwu. When Wen was about 1 month old, she was taken by family planning. Meanwhile, in Zhejiang province, Mr. Li had another girl and another boy. Two years after Mr. Li and his family left for Zhejiang province, he returned to Zhenyuan and it was only at this time that he learned about family planning seizing his third daughter.
