    I was adopted too!

    I selected this book to review for personal reasons; I, too, was adopted! Although our family was not interracial, I think the word adoption stirs up feelings of exclusion and rejection by many. To me, the word means "SPECIAL". I remember asking my mother (the woman that raised me-she EARNED the honored title of Mother) WHEN she told me I was adopted; she said, "When I rocked you as an infant." I asked her if she thought my natural mother ever thought about me; she said, "OF COURSE, especially on your birthday." I also remember asking her if she HATED my natural mother, like I did; she said, "Oh no, I am truly grateful and thankful for your mother. She loved you so much, knowing she couldn't provide for you, gave you away so someone else could; someone like me and your daddy!" For some reason, that made sense to me. I adored my mother and had an enormous amount of respect for her; so if that's what she thought, I would think that too! Forever!

    My sister was different; being adopted was difficult for her to accept. Although I have no idea if she asked my mother the questions I did, it was apparent she was bothered by the fact and never wanted anyone to know. Honestly, I didn't care one bit; as a matter of fact, I was PROUD of it! I remember visioning my parents walking through a grocery store meat market - checking out all the little babies - and PICKING ME! I thought I must have been an adorable little girl and I MUST have been irresistible!

    My dream is that every child would feel the way I did! And in my opinion, this little illustrated book sends that message, loud and clear! And if you're a Christian (like me), there is NO DOUBT God placed US right where He intended us to be; in HIS rainbow! WE ARE VERY SPECIAL AND LOVED!

    About the author:

    Andrea Nepa is the mother of an adopted Vietnamese daughter named Leah. In 2001, Adoptions from the Heart assisted with the international adoption. Andrea dedicated her book to her daughter: "For my dear Leah, whose journey in her young life has already taken her to far away and unexpected places." In 2006, Leah was diagnosed with cancer. She is currently in remission. Andrea lives with Leah and her husband, David, in Haddonfield, New Jersey. She is a registered dietitian for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    "A Story About Interracial Adopotion"

    Red in the Flower Bed
    Written by: Andrea Nepa
    Published by: Tribute
    Reviewed by: Stephanie Rollins for ReviewYourBook.com 3/2009
    ISBN: 13: 978-0-9814619-9-1
    "A Story About Interracial Adopotion" 5 stars
    In simple terms, Nepa explains why some children who are adopted do not look like their family. The focus is on interracial adoptions, but any adopted child who does not feel they look like their adoptive parents will benefit from this book.
    Nepa explains that as a seed is carried with the wind to settle in fertile soil, a child sometimes is taken to another family to fully blossom. The illustrations are simple and child-like. They are very appropriate for this right-on-point book. This is the perfect introduction to a difficult topic. It is appropriate for the toddler years through elementary school.

    'A poppy by any other name...'

    RED IN THE FLOWER BED is a storybook for children and grownups alike, a charming extended rhyming poem that tells the story of a seed that drops frrm a poppy flower onto ground too hard for it to grow and thus begins a journey through nature's seasons and climes, carrying the wandering seed to a family garden where the seed drops by the grace of seasons and climate changes and grows into the bright red poppy - the missing addition to a garden longing to have all the colors of the rainbow. It is a simple tale but one rich in meaning and a subtle but poignant statement about interracial adoption. <BR/><BR/>Part of the beauty of this book is the choice of illustration. Since a separate illustrator has not been named, we can only assume that the poet, Andrea Nepa, has provided the colorful accompaniments. Her selection of using collage - using pieces of paper from a wide assortment of resources - enhances the book's message: we are all one and can come together despite our varied backgrounds and form a single entity of a family. This is a lovely little book that can be either appreciated as a story of nature's taking care of her elements, or as a warm statement about interracial adoption. A very nice touch! Grady Harp
