Abstract

Throwaway Daughter is a story which tells about the searching of ethnic minority identity. As what the title implies, the story is about a girl who was abandoned and neglected by her parents in China. Dong-mei Margaret Parker is the throwaway girl who was then adopted by a Canadian family. Along with her physical development, she realizes that she was different from her White family. Ironically, she rejects her Chinese identity which is attributed to her. Dong-mei thinks that she is an unwanted daughter of her biological Chinese parents who had thrown her away to the orphanage because they disliked her. However, her opinion turns to be a curiosity after she learns much about China and its culture. She is eager to know more about her origin and especially about her biological parents. Her process from rejecting until successfully dealing with her Chinese identity and biological parents is the interesting topic to be analyzed. Nevertheless, the effort in gaining decent interpretation may not be realized unless it is supported by appropriate approaches and theories.
