Walking off the plane with their daughter Adelynn
I am an adoptive parent myself and was captivated by the global proportions of this international adoption. Our child was born only three miles from our house and brought to us straight from the hospital. The perseverance and love that gave Sarah Woodard and her husband wings to endure their frustrating trials, and then enjoy the ultimate triumph in walking off the plane with their daughter Adelynn! The author provides a valuable resource for anyone who needs guidance on how to adopt a child from China and who, for a while, struggles with the child's initial adjustments. Good luck to everyone who will undertake this journey! Gisela Gasper Fitzgerald, author of ADOPTION: An Open, Semi-Open or Closed Practice?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

ADELYNN YOU ARE A VERY FORTUNATE LITTLE GIRL TO HAVE FOUND YOUR NEW PARENTS
It is so wonderful to read a heart warming story like the one from Sarah Woodard..She is a wonderful author and a wonderful mother and also a wonderful person to know. I knew she was a great person but after reading the book she has inspired me so much and now makes me want to write a book about my life. Sarah and Jeff I just want you both to know that Adelynn is one of the luckiest kids in the world to have you all for her parents..always remember that AdelynnWas this review helpful?

A "How To" guide for international adoption
This book gives a step by step guide to how to adopt an international child. It gives you from the begining; the confusion, the feeling of being overwhelmed, the longing, and finally the acceptance and joy when you first see your child. It is an everyman's guide, that we all can identify with. I found I am not unusal in my feelings. Also, reading it, it becomes a story of a family that you become really interested in. Woodard spins a good tale. I counld't put it down. I recommend it to anyone even thinking about adoption, or is interested in the process.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
