It looks like these wealthy and powerful Chinese people are doing a Reverse-Eric.
What I found a bit strange though, was the end of the article, when they talk about infertile Chinese parents making “designer” babies by selectively choosing egg donors.
A growing number, though, are open to egg donation. Often Chinese donors will seek ethnically Chinese or Asian egg donors, commonly with Ivy League degrees.
But others want tall, Eurasian children, agents said. “Lots of clients that are Chinese do use tall blond donors,” said Jennifer Garcia, case coordinator at Extraordinary Conceptions, a Carlsbad, California-based agency where 40 percent of clients are Chinese.
