Touched by the war in Vietnam and the contribution being made by American soldiers ;Frank decides to pluck one little child suffering from the devastating war and to make a difference in the child’s life. 

This true story chronicles the struggle of the family as they go through the process of adopting Kim. Red tape, fear, trepidation, tantrums, health struggles and lots joy mark the remarkable journey of the Chinooks in adopting and integrating Kim into their family. 

Personally,  I loved the book because I adore children. I thought the desire of Frank and his family to make a difference in the life of a shattered child amazing. Even more so the tenacity they showed as they waited two years for the adoption process to go through. Would you be willing to travel to a war torn country to adopt  a child, just so you can make a difference in the world?
