This is the story of two women who raise three adopted children; an asian little boy, a red headed girl and an African American girl. The African American daughter is the narrator and the book talks about how normal their family is despite the fact that they are considered a "non-traditional" family. Most of the illustrations in the book portrey a happy and loving family and shows that people can be accepting and embrace differences.
