FAMILY LIFE: Adoption


Jin Woo book Jin Woo
David likes his family the way it has always been, just him and Mom and Dad. He never wanted to be a big brother. And he certainly didn"t want Jin Woo, the little baby from Korea, to join the family. Now Jin Woo is getting all the attention, and David feels as if no one cares about him anymore. But then a surprising letter helps him to understand that being a brother can mean being surrounded with more love than ever.Eve Bunting and Chris Soentpiet bring the same deep emotion that distinguished their previous collaboration, So Far from the Sea, to this moving story of an adoptive family that has love to spare.

Melissa has a new sister -- and she's excited. There's so much to share with Kika: trips to the playground, afternoons at the library, and birthday parties.

The red thread :  an adoption fairy tale book The red thread : an adoption fairy tale
According to an ancient Chinese belief, when a child is born an invisible red thread connects that child's soul to all those people--present and in the future--who will play a part in his or her life. As each birthday passes, the thread shortens, bringing closer those people who are fated to be together. Inspired by this legend, beloved author/illustrator Grace Lin has created a lovely adoption fairy tale.
