A New Must Read from adoptive parent Alex King:

Alex and Jane met in college. On their second date, they agreed: Someday, wouldn't it be great to adopt a kid who needed a family?
Seven years later, the orphanage director takes them to a hotel room in Phnom Penh, Cambodia with their new baby. They adopt little Ivy, and fly home. Happily ever after, right?

Wrong–fifteen months later, they learn that perhaps this baby was not an orphan after all. Concerned, Alex begins to dig. Another trip around the world leads to no resolution.

Then an unexpected diagnosis makes Ivy's parents wonder just how many years of 'forever family' they can promise her. What if their teenager is left to grapple with this, alone, all too soon?

On their family's third journey to ask questions about baby Ivy's history, they finally find some answers. But this true story raises more questions than it resolves, about one family and about adoption as we know it.

Funny, troubling, and honest, this book will leave you asking yourself: How far would I go to find the truth? And how will I know when I get there?

A true story, now available at Amazon.com
