Ricki Mudd was born in 1993 in Quzhou, China but was adopted when she was four years old by a White American family living in SeaTac, Washington. For the rest of her childhood, Ricki would be raised in SeaTac with eight siblings. Her roots would eventually lead her back to China and her birth family in a series of life changing events. In this remarkable journey of self-discovery, Ricki learns to navigate her identity as a daughter of two different families in two different countries. Olivia Wolf, who is an adoptee herself, has her story.
