For years now the He family has been splintered, forced to live a sort of half-life. Never really living, with one foot held in a suspended animation that couldn’t possibly be real. The other foot going through the motions of life, working, sleeping, eating in a sort of funk that never goes away.
Struggling to create a new identity in a strange land. Mr. and Mrs. He fought to regain the right — from the state of Tennessee, when they lost their child to a Christian couple who tried to take what didn’t belong to them.

To capitalize on the synergy, Gov. Bredesen announced Tennessee will open an economic development office in Beijing in his October visit as part of trade delegation to China. Since 2001, Chinese Embassy has been monitoring AMH custody case.

These statements indicate to me that there may have been some serious negotiating between the state of Tennessee and certain Chinese officials. Did the Chinese buy back a child? Did the state of Tennessee hold a child hostage for a deal to sell cotton, providing much needed job for the impoverished textile industry?
