I enjoyed this book and the story of Lily's adoption, but quite frankly I thought both the women were a little (or a lot) weird. How could you go through all the hoops to adopt a child in China and then get there only to change your mind? The author included dream sequences in the book and while these were interesting, I found it a little different that she believed these were memories from a past life. But hey, who am I to say right? I was also very touched by the conditions the author wrote about in the orphanages which will haunt my thoughts.
