Melissa Fay Greene is in LA tonight!

I would like to go, but I'm not sure Melese will let me.

Have you read the book yet?

Maybe you'll catch her in your city.


  1. I'm reading it right now! It was a great way to pass the long flights to and from Addis! Fun read!

  2. Devoured it (and lucky to have a personally signed copy). It was a great book - funny, real...showed some of the hard stuff. I wasn't sure what to make of the way she talked about having given funds so freely and directly to birth families...the desire for all of us is there, but...we all know the but. I think she adopted most of her kids at a time when the rules weren't so clear. I also found it interesting that our attachment therapist read the book and said it was clear that MFG loves the children differently, meaning she loves them all, but there are differences based on how the relationship was formed and at what stage of child/adolescent development and with what challenges, etc.
