In fact, in the years since the relinquishing of the policy, China's fertility rate has only risen. During and following the Vietnam War , initiated by aggressive American foreign policy under the Kennedy and Johnson administrations due to a fear of the spread of communism into southeastern Asia, it is estimated that roughly 50, babies were born of American fathers and Vietnamese mothers.
To this day, attempts are being made to link American veterans to children that they may have fathered during their time in Vietnam. Other women resorted to unsafe forms of abortion carried out by people without medical training. Following the coup, Romania's birthrate steadily declined for the following decades. Foundlings, who may be orphans , can combine many advantages to a plot: Foundlings have appeared in literature in some of the oldest known tales.
In some chivalric romances , such as Le Fresne and the Swan-Children , in the variant Beatrix, some children of a multiple birth are abandoned after the heroine has taunted another woman with a claim that such a birth is proof of adultery and then suffered such a birth of her own. Indeed, most such individuals are of royal or noble birth; their abandonment means they grow up in ignorance of their true social status.
One of the earliest surviving examples of child abandonment in literature is that of Oedipus , who is left to die as a baby in the hills by a herdsman ordered to kill the baby, but is found and grows up to unwittingly marry his biological mother. In a common variant on the abandonment and rediscovery of an infant, the biblical story of Moses describes how the Jewish infant is abandoned by his mother and set to float in the Nile in a reed basket, in hopes that he will be found and nurtured; as planned, the child is discovered and adopted by the queen of Egypt, thus gaining a higher social status and better education, as well as a more powerful position than his birth family could have given him.
A similar story is told of other heroes who eventually learn about their true origins only as adults, when they find they are able to save their original parents or family by wielding power from their adoptive status, while making use of an education that sets them apart from their peers. The theme is also carried through in the case of many modern superheroes, most famously Superman see Modern Media below.
Mark Twain tweaks the traditional "upgrading" of the foundling's social status by having the child's twin, who is powerful by birth, experience the "downgrading " of his position in a switch planned by the two children, in "The Prince and the Pauper. In many tales, such as Snow White , the child is actually abandoned by a servant who had been given orders to put the child to death. Children are often abandoned with birth tokens, which act as plot devices to ensure that the child can be identified. This theme is a main element in Angelo F.
Coniglio 's historical fiction novella The Lady of the Wheel , in which the title refers to a "receiver of foundlings" who were placed in a device called a "foundling wheel," in the wall of a church or hospital. In Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale , a recognition scene in the final act reveals by these that Perdita is a king's daughter rather than a shepherdess, and so suitable for her prince lover.
From Oedipus onward, Greek and Roman tales are filled with exposed children who escaped death to be reunited with their families—usually, as in Longus ' Daphnis and Chloe, more happily than in Oedipus' case. Grown children, having been taken up by strangers, were usually recognized by tokens that had been left with the exposed baby: This may reflect the widespread practice of child abandonment in their cultures. On the other hand, the motif is continued through literature where the practice is not widespread. William Shakespeare used the abandonment and discovery of Perdita in The Winter's Tale , as noted above, and Edmund Spenser reveals in the last Canto of Book 6 of The Faerie Queene that the character Pastorella, raised by shepherds, is in fact of noble birth.
In the case of Quasimodo , the eponymous character in Victor Hugo 's The Hunchback of Notre-Dame , the disfigured child is abandoned at the cathedral's foundling's bed, made available for the leaving of unwanted infants. Ruth Benedict, in studying the Zuni, found that the practice of child abandonment was unknown, but featured heavily in their folktales.
The strangers who take up the child are often shepherds or other herdsmen. Romulus and Remus were suckled by a wolf in the wilderness, but afterward, again found by a shepherd. This ties this motif in with the genre of the pastoral. This can imply or outright state that the child benefits by this pure upbringing by unspoiled people, as opposed to the corruption that surrounded his birth family. Often, the child is aided by animals before being found; Artemis sent a bear to nurse the abandoned Atalanta , and Paris was also nursed by a bear before being found.
The pattern of a child remaining with its adoptive parents is less common than the reverse, but it occurs. In the Indian epic Mahabharata , Karna is never reconciled with his mother, and dies in battle with her legitimate son.
In the Grimm fairy tale Foundling-Bird , Foundling Bird never learns of, least of all reunites with, his parents. George Eliot depicted the abandonment of the character Eppie in Silas Marner ; despite learning her true father at the end of the book, she refuses to leave Silas Marner, who had actually reared her. When the cause of the abandonment is a prophecy, the abandonment is usually instrumental in causing the prophecy to be fulfilled.
