    Highly Recommended!

    This book tells how it is in these kind of places. It is sad but I am thankful for all the people that adopt these children.

    Borrow before you buy

    I think the author detracts from the story of these helpless children by interjecting too much about herself. She sort of trumpets her own benevolence to the point the story takes on a veiled "Thank God for the kids I was there" kind of tone, which I found distasteful. Contrasting the stark horror of starving infants and abused children are overly aggrandized personal trials and tribulations such as difficulty finding vanilla to bake homemade cookies, her back pain, difficulty communicating with her maid, etc. I wish I'd have borrowed the book or at least not paid full price.
