I didn't understand from the description that thoughts meant short quotes. Nice quotes but not much of a read. I guess this wouldn't be an issue of you bought it at a bookstore but if you shop at amazon it may be a surprise. If you want a book full of quotes about adoption this is your book. This is a very expensive kindle book for the length considering you cant leave it on a coffee table or easily share it.

This is like a coffee table style book (only small sized). I love the short inspirational quotes on each page. We purchased this for a wonderful couple who recently finalized thier adoption. Their story was so inspiring and this was a great companion gift to give them with some others.

This is such a good book. It will make you cry and laugh and think about adoption from every possible angle. And it will make you do all this in one sitting. It's emotionally moving and also very thought-provoking. I can't think of a better book about adoption -- both the very idea of it and the actual experience. A must read for anyone thinking about adoption.

Some of the best descriptions of adoption are captured in both the author's own words, as well as from quotes and excerpts that she selected from others describing adoption. I was disappointed to get to the end.

A wonderful and wise book on the joys of adoption. Anyone who has adopted a child will certainly adore and appreciate this book.

Compact, sweet, lovely and moving -- and not just for adopted parents and kids. I read this quickie in one sitting, and it opened my eyes to the beauty of every chosen parent-child relationship. "Suddenly, a new, pure love elevates you and connects you to a stranger, to the whole world." Wow. I am honored to be quoted in this book! A gem.

So many adoption books are from one point of view. I really liked that the author provided multiple perspectives; she didn't just "sugar-coat" the subject by providing all of the glorious moments, but instead pointed out the good and the challenging aspects. I would highly recommend this book for anyone considering the adoption route or anyone who has been touched by adoption. It's a wonderful resource!

This is the best book about adoption we've seen. It's a feel good book, definitely, but also gives a broad overview of the myriad aspects of adoption. We have been working our way through the comprehensive reading lists for more. Very valuable and very inspiring.
