This was a very good non-fiction book about an American couple trying to adopt a little boy from a Russian orphanage. It details much of the same deplorable conditions and political graft that I read about in "The Boy From Baby House 10". Both books make me glad I'm not in a Russian orphanage or trying to get a child out. You really feel for the couple as they become more and more desperate to take their son home. In the end human persistence triumphs and there is a very happy homecoming and a bright future. All in all, a very good read and an interesting look into another culture.
