These lost girls would not only experience it themselves, but would also affect the people they leave behind. The children experience culture shock from the fact that they are forced to leave and go with strangers that have adopted them to a strange land they know nothing about. They aren’t affected as much because most of the lost girls are shown to be only one to three years of age. The people from the orphanages have to deal with and experience loss especially the fact if some of them were close.

This makes them have a part of their life that they are missing because they may have formed a bond with them and depending on how strong the bond is will affect the person more or less emotionally. The new parents also experience it because of the fact they will be new parents to these children they will be adopting. This is because like if anyone were to get or have a new child.
