The hardcover edition of this book is out of print. However, the softcover edition is still available.
For the youngest child who is just beginning to wonder, "Where did I come from?" and for older children who want to be reminded how much they are cherished, this is an adoption story for all ages.
It is the story of a couple who long for a child, of a pregnant young woman who is not ready to be a mother, and of the events that bring them together for a happy ending. Told in simple terms, it invites children to ask questions about their own adoption story and gives parents a unique opportunity to tell it, whether their child's adoption was domestic or international, open or closed, or arranged privately or through an agency.
