Some families look alike, some don't. Some families are formed through birth, and some families are formed by adoption. But as the little girl in this heartwarming book makes clear, being a family isn't about who you look like or where you were born - it's about the love that binds you together. Adoptive families are sure to delight in the special story of the narrator's adoption - from her parents' excited preparations and long journey by airplane to meet her, to their life together as a family. Nancy Carlson's thoughtful, straightforward text creates a reassuring look at how one little girl came into her parents' world - and made them a family forever.
