They Come to Stay
It began a summer day in 1968. Marjorie Margolies, a young Philadelphia TV reporter covering a story on Korean orphans was suddenly possessed by a dream: Why shouldn't she herself give a child a home? Her parents and her relative were quick to supply her with reason why she couldn't. But Marjorie doesn't give up easily. She persevered and finally made the impossible happen.
In 1970 Miss margolies flew to Korea, where she met Lee Heh Kyung, a doll-like six year old. It was love at first sight, an adoption that worked. Four year later she went to Vietnam to find a sister for Lee Heh. Holly, aged six and half American, joined the family. But Holly had troubles. How Marjorie unraveled the mysteries of the little girl's traumatized past and taught her to love an to trust makes a triumphant and heartwarming saga.
They Came to Stay is a document of our times. It is a portrait of a talented woman who shared the fruits of her success, and of two small children who needed and returned her love.« less
