Touching Story About Adoptions Abroad
By Cynthia Kadohata Half a World Away - Cynthia Kadohata

Jaden was already four or five when he was adopted by his parents through an agency in Romania. He is haunted by his traumatic early childhood and feels he is a failure as a son to his adoptive parents. Now his folks plan to go to Kazakhstan to adopt another child. Jaden wonders if they want to replace him with this new addition to the family, this time an infant. This book is very touching and also sheds light on foreign adoption in remote countries. The agency Jaden's family uses is shady and breaks promises, but the family's desire to make the adoption work overcomes problems encountered. If this is the way of some adoptions, it is certainly an uncertain path to follow. The book targets young readers but I think it is a quick read, moving and also informative, for any interested reader.
