Homey, comfortable images help to tell the story of the new family’s formation. Readers Favorite stamped this children’s book with a huge five star approval rating and said, “it expresses so well the desire to adopt and the love and bond that is there between mother and daughter before they are together and the feelings of completeness and home once they are finally together. A beautiful story that will be treasured by parents and children.”
