I like the Chinese baby in the orphanage because she seems like me. I think the baby felt nervous at first when she got adopted, but then she got used to her forever Mommy. The part I like best is when the aunts and uncles give her presents and her mother sings rock-a-bye. I like the drawings too. I think they should make this book in Chinese so the orphanage kids waiting to be adopted can read it and know what their American parents might look like.
