" This is a beautifully illustrated book that deals with a single parent adopting from China. Only one of my children liked the book as a younger child. As she grew, she realized that the book isn't very true to the actual experience she had within the orphanage which wouldn't have made for such a happy book. I think this books speaks more to adoptive parents and the feelings they have about adoption. " said.

" One of the most beautiful books I have ever read about bringing a child of the heart into the home.I adopted Katherine 21 years ago, when she was only 10 days old. Darryl and I had waited 8 long years for her. When she was put into my arms, I cried and cried from happiness. That memory is so vivid in my mind it seems like only yesterday!I hope Katherine's birth mother knows how treasured our daughter is and I rejoice with Ms. Lewis on being able to bring her baby home. " said.

" This is a warm, fuzzy, sentimental story about the adoption of a Chinese daughter by a single parent, Rose Lewis. I love the way the entire family and culturally mixed friends welcome the new baby. I respect the way Ms. Lewis offers thanks and sweet references to the natural mother. It is a beautiful read-aloud and brings tears to the eyes of parents in my library. This book reminds me how I felt about the birth of my own two long-awaited children, who were born after 10 years of marriage. " said.

""...I received a letter with a picture of a beautiful baby girl...that was you. The people in China said I could adopt you if I promised to take good care of you. I promised I would."

Throughout the book, the illustrations are amazing. They are very vivid and show the author's real-life journey through a perfect depiction of images.The language is very realistic and relatable. This book can serve as a book for parents that also adopted children from China and are searching for something that they can read to their children.

This is a beautifully written and illustrated story documenting the authors own tale of how her child came into her world. The soft watercolor illustrations are the perfect touch for this warm heartfelt story. I love that the author writes this from a first person perspective to her daughter. This only accentuates the love and emotion she feels as she meets and brings home her daughter. The reader feels as though they are a “fly on the wall” in this special mother daughter moment.

This is a great book for adoption and families of every make and color

"I think these books by Lewis are sweet and the pictures beautiful but they don't seem very applicable to many others. The text is very specfic to the author's and her daughter's story and experience of adoption. It will be most applicable to other families who have adopted from a Chinese orphanage. This book also hightlights a single woman adopting which is a family type you don't see in most of the adoptive picture books. I may use this book to help strengthen and validate adoption identity and family type for others with similar situations/experiences." said.

"One of my all time favorite children's books ever. It is the sweetest story ever. It makes me what to cry every time I read it out loud. "I held you tightly, kissed you softly, and cried. The tears were for your Chinese mother, who could not keep you. I wanted her to know we would always remember her. And I hoped somehow she knew you were safe and happy in the world." Just simply beautiful. The illustrations also add whole another level to the portrayal of the book. Everyone should have this children's book on there book shelf. " said.

From Review
"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."
