The essays and occasional poem express all the emotions that accompany adoption from China as well as the nitty-gritty of dealing with packing, being a new parent, medical concerns, and more.
Amy Klatzkin is a brilliant editor who understands the adoption experience firsthand. She has not sugarcoated the experience, but given us the wonders, the complexities, and the sorrows here. Therefore, it is a great collection for those considering adoption as well as those who have already adopted.
This book makes a wonderful gift for adoptive families and their friends. I bought copies for everyone in my extended family. It will help them understand all the issues, and the joys and sorrows, of the adoption experience. Don't miss it!
