I am a Social Work student and did a project on China's lost children and how often girls are "thrown away" and abandoned. I have a little cousin who is about 6 now that was adopted from China. I became interested and wanted to read more...I stumbled upon this book. The picture is what drew me in actually. It is a great book about an unexpected addition to a family.Was this review helpful?

Wow great book
I actually bought this book at the $0.99 store and was amazed at how great of a read it was. From the very beginning I was riveted. I would recommend it to anybody who works with children from disadvantaged areas or who just wants a bit if insight into the lives of othersWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I read this book about 2 years ago & the story has stayed with me. Halfway through the book I had to look back to be sure that this was non-fiction. It was such an amazing story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I disagree with the other reviewer that said that Beth took advantage of Alex. It was very obvious that Alex was not a bit unsure & in need of simple encouragement but that she did not want this child & was even repelled by the sight of her. I feel that Lily was meant to be Beth's child just the same if she had given birth to her. God put her there for that reason - that's why Alex asked an acquaintance (Beth) to accompany her to China.
I am recommending this book for my book club & hope it makes our list. I think it will lead to a very lively discussion. This is one of my top 10 favorite books! MUST READ!!
