Good Book

I spent yesterday devouring Baby, We Were Meant for Each Other: In Praise of Adoption by Scott Simon from NPR. I didn't expect to like it and assumed it would whitewash the complicated moral and ethical dilemmas of adoption. In particular, I'm not crazy about the title. Once I started to read, however, I couldn't put it down. It's beautifully written and takes a look at adoption through the many lenses of many different families including Steven Levitt of Freakonomics and Nancy Verrier who wrote The Primal Wound: Understanding the Adopted Child. If you're looking for your next book, I'd highly recommend this one!
