Important Message in Fun, Easy to Read Format  Sep 10, 2006
A six year old girl's light hearted account tells how she came to her adoptive mother. The easy to follow text and child-like drawings celebrate adoption and "forever families" of every kind. It's an ideal story for lap-time reading or an easy way to make the adoption story part of 'happy bed time stories'. The book will inspire parents and kids to talk about their own first "meetings," whether at birth or in an adoption agency. This picture book will have great appeal for many youngsters, though adoptees and children from blended families and single parent homes will feel a special connection and be reminded that it's love that binds families together.

Heartwarming! Our Forever Family's FAVORITE!  Mar 25, 2006
A must have for every adoptive family's personal collection. Our three year old daughter (adopted from China), loves the story of Rain and Bo, and can relate so perfectly to how their forever family was formed - (and more importantly - how it explains how her own family was formed) - that she read it with us every night at bedtime. She now "reads" it all by herself - as it took no effort at all for her to memorize this heartwarming tale. Told from the child's perspective with simple but meaningful language, and the cutest illustrations - every child will love it. It's one of our favorites!
Not nearly as simple as that!  Dec 11, 2005
I am an adoptive mother, I have done quite a bit of research about adoption, and I have written my Master's thesis about adoption and its perspectives in children's literature. This book oversimplifies the subject and leads children to believe that an adopted baby understands the journey she begins when she meets her forever family. The text is nothing like what a six year old (the supposed age of the character narrator) would use. The pictures are over simple in some parts to look as if a child has drawn and colored them, and in other parts they are something like a bizarre cross between a photo and a sketch. They are not likely to draw a young child in or hold their interest.
It is impossible that this character, Rain, would have had all of the thoughts and feelings she tells her young readers she had. Many, many other adoption books are out there for children. Do not spend your money and time on one that paints an over-simplified story. It's NOT as simple as that.
