Yes, I am going to Brazil for my book tour there from 27th June to 10th July…

I have never been to that part of the world…

I am so so so excited…

I have been heavily editing on my new book since last month. It is about some secret Chinese mothers I met in China from 1989 to 2007, they all lost their baby daughters for different reasons. It will be published Chinese New Year 2010 by  my publisher Random House as planned.

Again and again, my soul has been watered by my tears for those mothers…

I hope all of Chinese adopted daughters could hear their hidden voice from my writing, and help this world to get a better understanding between mothers and children.

Anyhow, as the second part of my questions on China after 14th May 2009 is here…

Chinese Population: 1,306,313,812 (July 2005 est.);

Population growth rate 0.58% (2005 est.);

Ethnic groups: Han Chinese 91.9%, Zhuang, Uygur, Hui, Yi, Tibetan, Miao, Manchu, Mongol, Buyi, Korean, and other nationalities 8.1%

· What’s the challenge to Chinese population?
· Is there an imbalance of sex and education by single child policy?
· How much the percentage of its population has been educated?
· How much between rich and poor? How many are poor as under the life line?

I would like to continue to sharing my thoughts about China with you here…I hope I could learn some answers of these questions from YOU!
