Chinese Adoptions

Finished June 23
The Red Thread by Ann Hood
Maya has been getting over a tragedy in her life for some time. One thing she has done towards this is open an adoption agency to help people adopt babies from China. This book takes place a few years after her agency started up and is focused on a group of couples who came to the same orientation and are due to adopt their babies at the same time. We get to know the various couples and see the situations in their lives that brought them to the point of adoption. The dynamics between each couple are interesting and the situations are varied. As expected, it is mostly the women driving the process, but the men react in interesting and varied ways.
We also gradually see into Maya's past and watch as she finally comes to terms with it herself.
An interesting book, and an engaging story.
