Description: Born to Korean immigrant parents, Nicole Chung was adopted as a baby by a white Christian family and raised as the only person of colour in their small Oregon town. After years of not feeling she belonged and then becoming pregnant for the first time, she realised it was time to find out more about her birth family and the circumstances of her adoption, not only for herself, but for her future children too.

Engaging and thoughtful, this memoir is a candid examination of the challenges of interracial adoption and the undeniable importance of knowing where you come from.

We found the book useful to help understand deep and complex personal issues that adoption, especially inter racial adoption, raises. However the book was more suitable as an essay.
