In recent years the Chinese government has made it easier for foreigners to adopt Chinese children. It is estimated that there are up to four million Chinese baby girls in orphanages, and the number of Americans adopting these orphans is growing steadily. This book is a resource guide for people interested in adopting in China -- what to do, who to see and how much it will cost. It simplifies and explains important information about a sometimes mysterious subject. It is also a personal story of middle-aged couple's quest to become parents -- why and how they made the decision and what went on before, during and after the trip to China.
