The Red Thread by Ann Hood

This is a fiction book about a woman who runs an adoption agency that matches Chinese orphans with American families. We read about six families that go through the process of adopting. Interspersed between these stories are the six stories of each orphan – what their parents were like, the circumstances they were born into, and how and why they were given up.

A very sweet book that was sad at times. The struggles seemed real – for both the Chinese families who decide to give up their daughters and for the American families going through the adoption process. A bit predictable, but I did enjoy it.
