two thumbs up

A few weeks back as I was headed out for a vacation with my family (ugh, was that only a few weeks ago? Why does it so feel like I still so need a vacation?...but I digress...) I was sorting through my list of "to read" adoption books. None of them appeared even the least bit vacation/pool side friendly. While I feel it is very important to go through this process eyes wide open to all the potential difficulties and issues that may arise - sometimes you need a little break from all the horror stories. There was one book I had been hoping to read, an adoption novel/memoir that looked very unlike the others on my list: The English American by Alison Larkin. It was perfect. Funny, poignant, and filled with rays of adoption insight. If you are feeling a little tired from all the tough reads and need one that feels a bit more like summer vacation, this may be just the book for you.

Thank heavens! A light adoption read. I was beginning to feel bogged down. Thanks for the tip.

i just reserved it at the library. I have to wait a couple months but that's no problem. Anxious to read it.
