Mother-love is profound, however a baby comes into a woman's life. For Rose Lewis, the journey to motherhood begins with a letter to Chinese officials, asking if she can adopt from the "big room with lots of other babies." The infants in that room in China are each missing a mother, but Lewis is missing something, too--a baby. She travels to China to meet her new little girl and falls head over heels in love. Taking her baby home to America, Lewis introduces her to all her family and friends, and they begin their life together. ( )

i thought this book was OK. I enjoyed the realistic pictures, but I feel as if it lacked a climax and it failed to interest me throughout. The illustrations accurately depicted a single mom adopted a child from China and they included a lot of bright and interesting colors/color combinations. However, the book simply told about the process of the mother getting on a plan to pick up her child and then bringing her home to meet the family. It lacked realistic features like when she said she wrote a letter to the Chinese government asking for one of their babies and they simply replied as long as you promise to take good care" of the girl. I know there is a lot more that is included in the adoption process and I do believe it should have been included so that the reader is properly informed about adoption and so they don't think that anyone can just adopt a child by mailing the government a letter. I think adoption is a higher grade level subject, so the specifics on adoption should be included in this book. ( )
