About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Ten year old Shelly is upset when she discovers that her parents plan on adopting a child. Shelly enjoys her ‘only child’ status and is not willing to give it up without a little struggle. As she becomes more aware and lets go of her selfishness, we see her evolve into a caring person anxious to become a big sister to a child far away.

This book is a valuable resource that could be given to the adopted child to read when she’s a little older. It’s also a story that could be handed to the child’s siblings, cousins, classmates, and friends. Actually, with the world getting smaller each year, “The Journey to Mei” could be read by all children to foster an understanding of another country’s traditions and culture.

- Freddie Remza

“The Journey to Mei” will be a valuable asset to all people adopting from China. Even though we’ve spoken about some of the issues of adoption when our child was younger, it’s nice to see it in a story and to read and discuss it together. The book explains so much and does so very simply, clearly and delicately.
