Elizabeth was adopted from China. The mother in the book is describing the mother who she adopted her daughter from. It's kind of hard to understand but its really good if you read it twice. But its a great adoption story that helps me understand more about adoption and family differences.

This is a very charming tale of a young Asian girl that has a heart to heart talk with her mom of being adopted. She starts to wonder about where her biological mom is, but in the end she hears the special song that her mom always sings to her to let her understand that she will be loved forever by her. ( )
