The Mirror of Karma

A story about karma and 4 sisters with the same mother:

1. The Big Sister, Gi-Gi Chen, born in China, came to USA at age 22

2. The 2nd Sister, Lily Kong, unwanted child born in Hong Kong, victim of the one-child policy

3. The 3rd Sister, Mei-Ling Kong, unwanted child born in China, victim of the one-child policy

4. The baby sister, Mimi King, born in Panama, the only one whose father is American-Caucasian





Story background: The practice of the two-child policy was in place during the mid 70s in China. Based on Chinese tradition, the failure to have a son was a betrayal of their ancestors. Lotus gave birth to 3 daughters, in a row. In order to keep the last birth quota for a son, she reluctantly and secretly gave away her second and third daughter for adoption, and finally had a son. In 1982, Lotus divorced her husband and immigrated to Panama with her remaining daughter, Gi-Gi. Lotus then married an American Engineer in 1986, and gave birth to Mimi. The family relocated to Los Angeles in 1995. Seven years later in 2002, Gi-Gi and Mimi met a fortune-teller, and with the use of a magic mirror discovered Lotus’ secret, hidden for over 20 years. The second and third daughter, Lily and Mei-Ling, finally met their biological mother. Lily, who was tortured in China and Hong Kong, hated mom for abandoning her, and blamed mom for her bad luck…what happened? Who’s to blame?
