Bin was eventually sold to a couple that was unable to have children of their own. His?parents searched far and wide for him. His father told the Shanghaiist, ?as long as we had a sign, we went.?

That was in 1991. Now, 24 years later, Bin has finally been reunited with the family he was taken from. His mother passed away in 2001, according to the Mirror, but before she died, she gave birth to his?younger sister.

Bin says he always knew he?d been kidnapped, and even grew to love his new parents, but he began the search for his biological family?as soon as he was old enough.

Unfortunately, Bin?s story isn?t the only one ? and not all of these stories? endings are happy. According to an article by The Atlantic, child trafficking for adoption, or baby buying, is a severe problem in China.?Sadly, it?s a ?taboo? subject, and the government hasn?t released?any public statistics about the number of kids taken?and sold into adoption, though they do admit that the problem exists.

At least for Bin, he is back with his loved ones.
