TBR Tuesday

One of the ladies I work with headed off to China earlier this month to pick up her little boy, a brother for the little girl she and her husband adopted, also from China, about seven years ago. We are all so excited for her! What a long journey and amazing story her family has. It brought to mind this book on my TBR list: The Red Thread by Ann Hood

Here's the synopsis from B&N:
“In China there is a belief that people who are destined to be together are connected by an invisible red thread. Who is at the end of your red thread?” After losing her infant daughter in a freak accident, Maya Lange opens The Red Thread, an adoption agency that specializes in placing baby girls from China with American families. Maya finds some comfort in her work, until a group of six couples share their personal stories of their desire for a child. Their painful and courageous journey toward adoption forces her to confront the lost daughter of her past. Brilliantly braiding together the stories of Chinese birth mothers who give up their daughters, Ann Hood writes a moving and beautifully told novel of fate and the red thread that binds these characters’ lives. Heartrending and wise, The Red Thread is a stirring portrait of unforgettable love and yearning for a baby.
I love the idea of a thread connecting us to our destinies.
