    Those who are more concerned with political correctness than truth will most likely have a knee-jerk reaction to this book. They'll label it as "anti-adoption" or as "uncaring". 
    That would really be a shame.  This book is a brilliant, truly loving story clarifying the vitally important message that charity should be a voluntary, beautiful gift from the heart.
    If you take an intellectually honest look at our current system, its obvious that it exploits the goodness of charitable people, forcing them to take ever increasing responsibility for everyone else's "chicks" at the expense of their own. It made perfect sense to my son.  
    If you enjoyed Hillary Clinton's book "It Takes a Village", you'll probably hate this one.
