I am a very slow reader when it comes to e-books, so when I got this to review, I knew it was going to take me a bit. Thankfully though I flew through it quite a bit better than most e-books.
I felt like I was living in Johanna's shoes. As she takes us through her journey of life and how she came about adopting children from China...I felt like I was there with her, living right along with her. Which hardly ever happens in books.
While they were living their year in China, it was so interesting to hear customs and regular life in China with their travel journeys while living in China. It was a heart warming book and full of laughter as well, which I didn't expect.
Like learning about other countries? Interested in adoption stories? Check out this book, I doubt you'll be disappointed!
