Last night the rest of the story came out - it was a bombshell. My understanding of what she shared is the following. Her parents did bring her to the orphanage at 5 or 6. But not to be adopted, it was for an education. Because she lived over two hours away, she stayed there to go to the deaf school. At around 8 or 9 they came and picked her up and brought her home for a while (summer vacation/Chi*ese New year?). She told me that there was something at her house, that made her sick and throw up, something green. I was never clear what it was. And I think she said others were sick also. At sometime she said her Father worked very hard all the time and made enough money to buy a newer and bigger house. She also had a dog.
My understanding is because she lived at the deaf school during the week, she was only at the orphanage for the weekends because she couldn't go home. It seems that her parents would come see her and bring her home every 1 or 2 years. The last time she saw them was on the Chi*ese New Year, a year before we adopted her.
From my direct questioning, she said that her parents do not know where she is and as far as she knows she was not supposed to be adopted. She thought she was just going with us for a little while and would be returned to her parents.... This information, if verified, overwhelms me with grief and sadness for the pain she has suffered this past year and her parents who have lost their daughter.
