Going Back: Another Story

Children adopted from China to visit as government guests
When Hannah Pendleton returns to China this week, it will be like seeing her native country for the first time.

While Hannah was 10 when she was adopted from China by an American family, she saw nothing in her first decade beyond the walls of an orphanage.

Now, Hannah and her two adopted sisters will be among 42 Bay Area children invited by the Chinese government to see the famed sites and wonders of their birthplace, from the Great Wall to Tiananmen Square to iconic pandas -- things Hannah knows only from pictures.
