Just a Great Little Book
"He is adopted and very proud of it," reads the blurb on the back cover of this interesting little paperback. "Just Chris" begins just as one would expect - at the beginning of Chris. We learn some of the difficulties encountered in finding willing adoptive families for those babies which on the outside lack the appearance of perfection. We grow along with Chris as he grows. We learn as he learns. We go through the painful surgeries along with him as he relies upon medical science and the love and support of his parents to become and to obtain what so many of us take for granted.Was this review helpful?

Chris just lives and grows and takes us along with him for the ride. We share with him some very rich and rewarding events along the way. What these are can only be discovered by becoming a traveler alongside Chris in his young life.
This is a well-written little tome. It makes for very enjoyable reading due to its flowing style. The reader goes from place to place and event to event with grace. The author is sentimental without being maudlin and preachy. Chris lets the reader know just what he thinks, but doesn't tell the reader what to think. That is one thing that makes this book refreshing. The reader is trusted just to go along on the journey.
Young Mr. Welch's first book is called "Christopher the Bullfrog Catcher." This book, as is his other one, is available through any bookseller

This story is touching and so inspirational. Chris does a wonderful job of relaying to the reader his love for his family, how he has over come his disabilities, and the often funny side of his personality. He is a very sensitive and aware young man. I think that everyone would be greatly touched by the story of his life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
