Reactions to Born from the Heart have been mixed. Some think it takes the pregnancy metaphor of a heart that grows bigger and bigger, necessitating clothes from “a special store for special moms like her,” too far. Others see the tale, which the author based on her own early talks with her son, as light fantasy and “a cute way to explain adoption to a child.” —KAT
