At The White Swan Hotel in Guangzhou, all adopted kids receive a special gift from Mattel. . . American Barbie and her Chinese baby.
When you adopt in China, all roads home must pass through Guangzhou. That's where the American Consulate that processes visas for adopted Chinese kids is located. The White Swan, a beautiful five star hotel on the Pearl River, caters to adoptive parents. Thus, the partnership with Mattel and the free Barbie.
I saw all shapes and sizes of exhausted adoptive moms at breakfast this morning. I can't say I saw any that looked anything like that Barbie : )
And c'mon Mattel. I know you make some toys for boys.
