Lian, a young Chinese-Canadian woman, went to Baotaqiao police station in Nanjing, Jiangsu province on Feb. 14. It was her first time back in China since she was an infant, and she carried with her an old certificate. After 20 years in Canada, Lian had returned to look for her biological parents, Modern Express reported.

According to the certificate, Lian was abandoned in Daqiao Park in Nanjing on June 3, 1997. A kind-hearted person found her and brought her to Baotaqiao police station. The police then took her to a children's welfare home after searching unsuccessfully for her parents.

Thirteen months later, Lian was adopted by a Canadian couple. Since then, the girl has been living with them in New Brunswick, on the eastern coast of Canada. Lian is the couple's only child, and she enjoyed a happy life with them. She is now a freshman majoring in health science at a Canadian university.

Lian and her boyfriend decided to take a semester off from school for their trip to China. She will return to Canada to continue her studies in September of this year.

When the police asked Lian whether she had anything to say to her biological parents, she offered this note: "Hello, if you do see me, I don't know if you want to see me. But if you do, I'd really like to talk to you about myself. I'd like to say that I have had a good life these past years, and I appreciate everything that has happened to me."
