The story of a white journalist from Mississippi and his African American wife's attempt to adopt a baby girl from Zimbabwe while they are living in the country. Also explores the AIDS crisis in Africa, the history of Zimbabwe, and race relations in both the U.S. and Zimbabwe. A bit slow moving at times, but fascinating, and I learned a lot about a country that has been all over the news lately!
