A heartwarming collection of true stories that weave a rich tapestry of the
adoption experience from many different perspectives: birthmothers, adoptive
parents and grandparents, and adopted children and adults. These inspiring stories
reveal the challenges and joys of the lifelong adoption journey including: the
pain of letting go of a child; the wonderment of meeting "your" perfect
child halfway around the world; the challenges of adopting an older child already
set in his ways; watching a child's potential flourish in a loving environment;
sibling rivalry and eventual bonding; integrating a child's culture into a new
multiracial family; finding peace in the search for identity, roots and unanswered
questions; and feeling the happiness and love that comes from forming a family.

While each story is unique, the emotions conveyed are universal: love, loss,
hope and joy.

The collection will appeal to everyone affected by adoption, regardless of
their phase in the journey.

Stunning black-and-white photos are included.
