Practical information combined with an endearing tale of instant parenting

With more than 4 million Chinese baby girls in orphanages, the number of Americans adopting these orphans is steadily increasing, and this resource for people interested in doing so outlines what to do, where to go, who to see, and how much it costs. Simplifying important information about procedures, forms, and agencies, the guide is also the personal story of one middle-aged couple’s quest to become parents—as well as why and how they made the decision and what went on before, during, and after their trip to China.
