What happens when all that is familiar disappears…when everything you see, taste, smell, feel, hear….is suddenly gone and lost to the other side of the world? Enter the world of An-Ya and Her Diary… An-Ya and Her Diary chronicles the journey of an 11 year old adoptee from China. Written in diary format, young An-Ya reveals her emotional journey as she is catapulted from a Chinese orphanage into a middle class home in America. The diary, into which she journals, was the only item left with An-Ya when she was found as an infant. For 11 years An-Ya has left the diary blank as she patiently waited in China for her biological family to return. Ultimately, after her adoption to America, she feels compelled to write her story down. Inside her diary she strives to connect the two severed worlds in which she has lived. An-Ya’s story is one of incredible loss, filled with painful transitions and longed for hope. It is a story that will linger with you after its final page is turned.
