Finding Joy - By Marion Coste
The tender story of a couple from the United States who decide to adopt a baby girl from China. This is an excellent book for reading to a child who HAS BEEN adopted, or for sharing with a group of children to TEACH them ABOUT adoption! The storyline will help little ones to see that being adopted is truly a precious thing - and it doesn't necessarily mean that their REAL parents didn't want them, either! Because of China's strict family laws, literally thousands of Chinese infants have been adopted since 1991, and are now in loving, caring homes. The oriental illustrations match this story beautifully.
