Their child grew and grew. Not in the mommy's tummy, but in the daddy and mommy's thoughts and hearts." This quote is taken from 'Heart of Mine: a story of adoption' by Dan and Lotta Hojer. It is a lovely illustrated story about the adoption of a baby girl, Tu Thi, from a foreign country. Although the country is nameless, it could easily be China or Vietnam because of the pictures accompanying the story. While not wanting to give too much of the story away it is one already known to so many of us. It begins with a childless couple waiting for a referral of a child. Next comes the day when it arrives followed shortly by her picture. The much longed for trip is finally made to bring Tu Thi home to begin life as a family.
The illustrations, like the story, are simple, yet wonderful and thought provoking. 'Heart of Mine: a story of adoption' is a must for anyone with an adopted child or children. It is suitable for children (and adoptive parents!) of all ages. For children who cannot yet read, following the illustrations alone will give much enjoyment.
