I received this book when it was first published -- and I love it -- it's the first children's book I found about the Eastern European adoption experience. While it doesn't specifically cover Romania (our country of adoption), it is a wonderful new book and I wanted to share the news with you.
From the first page ("When I first met you, you lived in Russia, a country far across the ocean. Now, you live here, close to my heart.") to the last ("You will always be Russia's child. But now, you are also mine."), the book expresses love for the child, appreciates the child's heritage, and celebrates the joy a child brings to a family through adoption.
Kudos to the author and the illustrator for this wonderful new book! I highly recommend this book!
