Good morning! For some reason, I have been on a reading about adoption kick lately. A friend lent me No Biking in the House Without A Helmet.
http://melissafaygreene.com/

I soooo wish I had read this book between adoptions. For one, it is funny as heck. But her story really resonates with me, having adopted older kids.

I also downloaded Silent Tears on Kindle: http://kaybratt.com/books/. The author is not an adoptive mom, but she volunteered in a Chinese orphanage and talks about her work there. She also talks about the behaviors the kids develop from a very empathic perspective.

I highly recommend both books. Thought I would share with all of you!
