really liked it

I loved this memoir of a procedurally tough Guatemalan adoption, which I know others who've lived through. It reminded me of Love in the Driest Season. An unflinching look at both Guatemala and its corrupt systems, and at adoptive parents, besides. It's an exciting and even suspenseful read, as well, and more great exploratory inner memoir--how much is the author capable of, and how much can she take-- more than "parenting memoir."
