When Emily Buchanan married her husband, Gerald, after a fairy tale romance, she assumed children would soon follow. The perfect wedding must surely lead to the perfect family. Emily had a successful career and a loving husband, yet she knew that she would not feel fulfilled unless she also had children.  

But the journey to motherhood was to be a long and painful one.

Three miscarriages later she found herself struggling against the stigma of infertility and doubts if she could, or should, ever become a mother.   She decided it was time to look at adoption.  

Emily and Gerald’s desire to adopt a very young child meant looking abroad yet, as a journalist, Emily knew only too well the sad plight of some children in the developing world who were trafficked to Western couples. She was determined that her child should come from a country where adoption was properly regulated and China, where many baby girls are abandoned, seemed an obvious choice. It was a road that took her through an arduous adoption process which made her again confront the life and tragic death of her own mother.  

Eventually the mountain of bureaucratic and emotional challenges gave way to the utter joy of bringing up Jade and Rose her two Chinese daughters.
