When I Met You: A Story of Russian Adoption


Based on the author’s own family’s experience, this book describes a child’s life before and after she was adopted from Russia. From scenes in the orphanage to the child’s Russian birthmother, this is the first children’s picture book that chronicles the special background of children adopted from Russia. Delicate watercolor and pencil illustrations perfectly complement this poetic and heartfelt text, a celebration of the joy that adopting a child brings to a family.
