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.
