This week, the Chinese government announced a major change: all Chinese families will now be permitted to have two children.
For 35 years, the nation's one-child policy shaped the lives of millions of people around the world — including Ricki Mudd.
Mudd is one of more than 100,000 children, mostly girls, who have been adopted from China since the early 1990s. But unlike many adoptees, Mudd knows her backstory.
She was born to a rural family, in a region where there was intense pressure to have a boy. So her family hid her away, hoping they'd have a son.
