I was hoping for more on the challenges of this blended family (like conflicting personalities and discipline) but she didn't really address any of that until the book was almost over. I also thought it was interesting that she discussed how important it was for each child to retain their original culture (Ethiopian, Bulgarian) and they made trips back to Ethiopia and attempted to maintain contact with biological family members. But when it came to religion her adopted children were expected to leave their religion behind and convert to Judaism. Why not let them keep their religion as well as the other aspects of their culture (food, language)?
