The Nature of Small Birds by Susie Finkbeiner


An interesting story that is told by the members of the family.  The story is told in the present as well as in the past.  

I was intrigued by the title and the cover.  That is why I picked up the book in the first place.  But the story drew me in!  As a mother, I could relate to the mother in the story.  I can remember watching my children grow up and leave the "nest".  They were ready for the world but was I ready to let them go?

A family is a group of people who love you and supports you.  The members don't have to share a bloodline.  Linda and Bruce were ready to adopt.  They expected a baby boy. Mindy was in need of a home and their arms and hearts were open.  

The book explains the difficulties they experience adopting a child from another country.  Mindy was from Vietnam.  It also talks of how Mindy felt and her journey of discovery.

I enjoyed the book.  I had to make sure to keep track at the beginning of the chapter of what year it was and whom was talking or you could get confused.  

I received this book to give a honest review from Revell.
