Abstract:

Aching to expand from a couple to a family, Jeff and Christine Gammage embarked upon a journey that would carry them through shifting emotions--excitement, exhilaration, fear, apprehension--and miles of red tape and bureaucratic protocol, to a land on the other side of the world where a little girl waited. When they met Jin Yu, a silent, stoic two-year-old, in the smog-choked city of Changsha in Hunan Province, they realized that every frustrating moment of their two-year struggle was worth it. But they also realized that another journey had only begun. Now there was much to experience and learn. This book is a journalist's depiction of the foreign adoption process and a glimpse into a different culture, but more important, it is a heartfelt chronicle of the making of a family.--From publisher description.
