Sarah was adopted from Korea. She and her husband have 4 kids. She wrote this book during the terrible 15 month wait to meet their son in Korea for the first time. His foster mom in Korea read this book to him after they met and it seemed to help him prepare. It is still one of his favorite books to read. The hope of the author was to help prepare her son for the life changing transition, for him to always know that his foster mom cared for him and that she loved him the best she could from America.
