Great adoption book from childs' view

This book cuts out all the adult psycho-babble and goes right to the day to day issues that the adopted child faces in terms a child can relate to.

our favorite family adoption book

I did not anticipate that I would love this book as much as I do. Most adoption books do not really "fit" our family for several reasons. Our children are adopted through the county, so we were not chosen by the birth parents, didn't get to meet them, etc. Our children are a different ethnic background, we adopted siblings, etc. Our situation is much different from that described in most children's adoption books. When I got the book today, it didn't seem like much. I wasn't prepared for a story that would seem so much likes ours. I did a quick read thru before reading it with our kids (ages 10,8,6 and 1). I didn't make it thru without crying. It felt like my child wrote it. I am so excited to find a book FINALLY that fits, and that our kids can relate to. I am considering sending a copy to a few families close to us. One of the best things about the book is that the adoptive mother and adopted daughter wrote the book together. It is written from the point of view of the child, 6 yrs old. The recommended age is 4-8 yrs, but it was totally appropriate for my 10 yr old son. I think it is ever so much more touching because it is written as the daughter telling you the story, and what an awesome experience for a mother and daughter to go through together--writing a book like this together!

a great book

This is a great book that incorporates two issues that children often have to deal with: adaption and racial issues. The book, told in the first person, focuses on two adapted children of two different cultural backgrounds. Highly reccommended--it will teach your children that not everybody in the world is the same.
