This watercolor painting illustrates the first happy scene in this children's book. The mother just arrive to the town in China where the little girl is. It is in front of the orphanage center. The care-givers are holding the Chinese girl waiting for the mother arrive. The mother is so happy when she sees the her new child, a beautiful Chinese girl.

All the worries in the mother's mind, in this moment on, were gone. She is happy for her decision to come to China for her Chinese daughter.

Book Summary: When Shu-li is born, her mother and father wrap her in a blanket and take her to town. The government says that a family is allowed to have only one child. So they lay shu-li on the ground beneath a bridge. On her blanket they pin a note that reads This is our Shu-li. Please take care of her. No room for girls. Fortunately, She-li is found and taken to an orphanage. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a husband and wife in North America hope to adopt a baby from China. Marion Coste's moving story of a mother who makes the long journey to a faraway land to meet her new baby is tenderly illustrated by Yong Chen.
