A touching and beautiful adoption story that reveals the challenges as well as the joys of forming a new family.

This is a story about a little girl who needed a mommy
and a forgotten blanket that needed a little girl
and a woman who needed them both.

This is a journey about the forming of a family.
It is as lyrical as a love letter from a mother to her daughter,
as honest as the struggles they encounter,
and as comforting as a cozy red blanket.

Eliza Thomas went to China in 1994 to adopt her daughter PanPan, who was then 5 months old. This is their story.
