Dear Julia and family,

I picked your book up from Sydney's airport yesterday and have not been anble to put it down, I have just finished it. Thank you for sharing your beautiful story, it bought tears to my eyes several times and a smile to my face.

My husband and I have just returned from working in an orphange in China and intend to submit our paperwork to adopt a child from overseas very soon...the timing of reading your book was perfect for me.

I wish you and your family every success and I must congratulate you on being brave enough to allow your children to find their first families....your book was sensational.

PS. If you have any advice/tips on how to be successful in adopting from overseas during the whole process please do email me.
