Excellent memoir! For anyone who has adopted or wants to adopt a girl from China, this book will be invaluable. If you know of a family who has an adopted child, you will gain a tremendous understanding of their love.
"An evocative memoir that will not only attract parents or would-be parents of Chinese baby girls but also touch the hearts of us all." Chicago Tribune
My niece is adopted from China, so I wanted to learn more. Very good book!
This is a great memoir! Not only does the author take us on her journey of adopting a little girl in China, but all of the political and cultural baggage that surrounds the process. It's not a good thing to be a girl in China, then nor now! This is also a good read for Asian Americans born in America. We almost share the same identity struggles growing up. There is a great resource in the back of the book for adoptions in China.
