Nicole Chung tells a beautiful story of the mystery of her birth and adoption simply and with deeply considered truth. Trans-racial adoption was both a great gift and also a burden for her. Terrific writing. (Ms. Chung is a magazine editor by day.) I especially loved her description of motherhood and birth preparation and how it stirred her up to investigate her own birth family. When pregnant with my second, I too needed to go on a (different) journey of self discovery and vulnerability and this book captures that. Masterful.
