This is one of the better pieces I got on the air during the radio news workshop at King’s. Amy Crofts, a friend in the journalism program, had heard about a community group for families which had adopted children from China. Amy couldn’t do the story herself so she kindly passed it on to me.
I interviewed Karla, the president of the Nova Scotian branch of the group, as she had lunch with her daughter, AnnaLeisa. The story aired on January 17th.

and Karla Sonnichsen is helping to plan a big celebration.
She’s not Chinese,
but her little girl is.
Kevin Philipupillai tells us more.
