Scott Simon's New Book -- Excerpt

Click here to see an illustrated exerpt from Scott Simon's book about his adoptions from China, Baby, We Were Meant for Each Other: In Praise of Adoption.  The book isn't out yet, and I'm not sure I'd recommend it based on the title (you know my position on "meant to be!").  But anyone who has adopted from China is likely to see themselves and their child in this excerpt illustrated with family photos of that always-memorable first meeting.

"We told people that the look of surprise in her eyes was because she had just read our dossier and said, 'I thought you said that I was going to first-rate people!'"

I had to admit, that was funny.

I agree, I thought the whole excerpt was funny, and I don't expect every adoption memoir to be deadly serious, but that title! As Anonymous says, Oy.

That book looks AWFUL. Based on the title, alone, I would never go anywhere near it. Can you BE any more biased???
