I decided to read this book after seeing it advertised in a church mailer. My husband & I have been seriously considering adoption for a few months and I wanted some more insight on some things I already knew and had heard about the Russian orphanage/adoption system. John's tale is (and John himself) absolutely remarkable. The amount of heartbreak & pain he suffered is unimaginable... and the amount of happiness he has gained is simply breathtaking. I strongly reccommend this book & will be most likely be purchasing additional copies to give to our family to help explain some things personally. John - if you're reading this - I read a newspaper article online that said you hoped that writing this would "help a child not end up in the same situation I was in in" and I can assure you - it will. The gears were turning before reading your story, you just helped to direct them & turn them faster. Thank you!

Against all odds, John Lahutsky manages to escape a bureaucratic nightmare. His well written story will keep you interested and inspired.

I read this book for a book report I had to due in one of my Communicative Disorders class. I truly enjoyed reading this book. It is a very inspiring story. In the future I would love to adopt a baby from Russia. (Their ideas on exceptional children is completely wrong.) I had to put it down a couple of times because I would burst out crying but at the same time I could not put it down. It was remarkable!!!

Great book. I couldn't put it down; however, it's quite sad to see how people are treated in many institutions. I'm so glad that John was able to get out of that horrible situation. I highly recommend this book!

This book is hard to read, because of its dark subject matter, but also hard to put down, knowing that it is a true story. The tale of this little boy is unbelievably inspiring. After reading every event described I alternately wanted to hug John and lash out at those who hurt or ignored him. His testimony is a real eye-opener, revealing life behind the Iron Curtain even after the fall of the Wall. The vivid descriptions of John's daily life and the accompanying photographs are very poignant. This is a book I have recommended to all of my friends. Superb.

I went to see John at the local B & N for a book signing, but the book was sold out. I managed to get one once they were back in stock and am glad I did. I have 3 children adopted from Russia, and while none of them endured the hardship John did, so many of the images were so real from what I experienced. If anyone is considering adoption, I highly recommend that you consider Eastern Europe. There are many children in need and they obviously thrive once they are brought home. Great book John, and wishes for success in the future.

I have had the great pleasure of personally knowing John. Although I grew up with John (after he came to America) I never knew his complete life story. This book was a very emotional read and I highly recommend it. Fantastic work John!
