Absolutely entranced by Ladybug Love! The stories I agree with the other reviews are quick and easy to read. However, they pack a huge punch to the heart! I hope everyone takes the opportunity to share this book with as many people possible!

If you have any kind of connection to adoption - especially international adoption - you'll truly enjoy reading Ladybug Love.  The stories are quick, easy reads, with heart. They'll make you laugh, cry, smile, and feel like you're part of each family. If you're waiting, you'll find hope - if you've already adopted, you'll find recognition.

A very easy read. Loved the emotional reactions of the subjects on Match Day. I also loved the way the book was dotted with Chinese Proverbs. I highly recommend this book for anyone having adopted from China or still waiting for their "Match Day." Touching!
