Kindergarten-Grade 3-A book that helps a family consider an important, difficult question. Even though Morgan knows all about her adoption, the preschooler sometimes wonders about her "other mother." When she asks, "Did my first mother love me?" her mother reads the letter her birthmother wrote to her. It relates the woman's wishes to be the one to give her child a safe and happy home, but acknowledges sadly that this is not possible. The adoptive family's openness and love are evident. Pen-and-ink drawings realistically illustrate the story. A note for parents about "Talking with Your Child About Adoption" is appended. This slim volume will be of value to adoptive parents, especially those fortunate enough to have letters from a birthmother.Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, VA
