How I See It
Tai Dong Huai

Just before dawn, my mother placed the box outside the largest market in Taizhou. Concealed, she stood watch until the first shopper arrived to await the store's opening.
"What a beautiful child," the woman said as she lifted me up.
On her way to the police station, holding me close, the woman thought, I should keep her. But then she remembered her own second-born daughter, abandoned in a place not so very far from here.
