Back to My Roots: My Journey to China

by Yanina Verplanke

“Happy Life is starting from this moment”

This slogan is written on the wall of the Chinese adoption bureau of Chongqing. It is quite applicable to the seventeen-month-old toddler De Xing Fu. She grows up as a happy-go-lucky kid in Goes, a town in Zeeland, under the Dutch name, Yanina. After a couple of years she wonders where she is from and wishes to see her birthplace Fuling. In 2010, together with her adoptive parents, she makes an unforgettable trip to her birthplace. Meeting her nurses and the assistant manager of the home, she discovers the truth of the home’s device: “Love has no borders”. She is fully aware she cannot dismiss the chance she got to make something of her life.
