Breast feeding in China

The milk problem in China has many parents wondering what they can feed their babies. This is sort of a sad story about a birth mom who gave her daughter away and now will breast feed another child for money. I breast fed Jessica and Nicole until they could eat solid food. I know many Chinese women do not breast feed because they must work. For these mom's and for those babies in the orphanages I feel so sad. I wonder if there is a problem with the soy based formula? Anyway, this story of a woman that actually gave her baby girl away really got to me. I know in China there is a women that gave birth to our beautiful Sarah. Every day I am so blessed to have Sarah as my daughter but my joy was someones very real loss.
