Xinran Xue

Writer and Founder of Mother’s Bridge of Love charity

Xinran (full name Xinran Xue) is the founder of the charity Mother’s Bridge of Love. This charity aims to provide help and support for adoptive mothers of Chinese children. Mother’s Bridge of Love seeks to provide overseas Chinese children with a link to their heritage and culture, and also to provide for the millions of Chinese children growing up in poverty, with little chance of a quality education.

Xinran is a bestselling author and also a Guardian columnist who writes about a vast range of topics concerning China and its culture and practices, thus further bridging the gap between the two cultures. Her books include What the Chinese Don’t Eat, Sky Burial, and The Good Women of China: Hidden Voices.

Xinran was a Finalist of The Pearl Award for the Promotion of Cultural Links and Exchange in 2006.

Dear Xinran Xue I have two children myself from China. I'm a child psychologist, and to improve orphan care I developed this free training program for orphanage and foster family staffs to improve child care. Perhaps you know someone who would translate it into CHinese also?

Hi Xinran Xue, I am a Canadian of Chinese ancestry. On a recent trip to China, I spoke with a gentleman that had found an abandoned baby girl and wanted to know if I knew anyone that could adopt and take care of her. This as I am finding out now is too common in China. You have a ton of insight on this matter. I come from a family of filmmakers and am wondering why a documentary of your experiences has not been produced. If I had the means, I would definitely be producing one. I believe it could immensely help your cause. I would like to know if you are ever in Canada, I would love to meet you. You are a wonder and warm human being. Cheers Gord Cheong

I have just finished reading the amazing book 'Sky Burial'. I really enjoyed the book. I would like to ask you if Shu Wen responded to your letter at the end of the book. Warm wishes, Dianne Gale.

Hi, xinran I heard you on CBC (Canada) radio for the first time. And I am really impressed. You really spoke for the oppressed. May God bless you. The words "..Why my daughter can not cut a cake..." is still in my head. Moreover, your advice to the adopted girls is time less. You presented it like no one can. May God bless you for your generous attitude towards the poor.

Dear Xinran, i have been engaged in humanitarian projects in Afghanistan, Yemen and other countries, wrking for over 12 years for the Red Cross and other orgs. I would like to get in touch wth you to evaluate together the possibility of supporting orphanages in China thorugh the funds of an NGO I have recetly funded. I know that it is a very sensitive issue and the access is difficult, therefore I am envisaging a training program for the staff of the orphanages, a program we have successfullly run in other countries, in agreement with the Government and with no media coverage. If you feel this could work or wish to suggest alternatives, please get in touch with me. Regards, Susanna

Dear Xinran, I am just starting your book message from an Unknown Chinese Mother and even in the first few pages feel so connected to China and these stories. We adopted our son Chu Xin Shun from Xuzhou City, Jiangsu in 2008 and our lives are forever changed. He was born with deformed feet and I am hoping this is addressed in the book. Although his was not abandoned until a few months, I know his parents must have struggled with giving up a son. I have so many questions that can't be answered here in the USA. I am hoping to gain more knowledge in your book and so appreciate you writing about these mothers who gave so much. Thank you, A lee .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
