Somewhere in the world there was a woman who wanted to be a mother but she didn't have a child to love...Somewhere in the world there was a child wishing for a family and to be taken home.
"Mama's Wish/Daughter's Wish" are two stories told by both the woman and the child of how their wishes take them on a miraculous journey, a journey of making their two stories into one.
With gentle illustrations and language a child can understand, "Mama's Wish" is a story for all ages that shows how much an adopted child is waited for and wanted. "Daughter's Wish", told by a 4 year old of her wait for a new family, tells how wonderful it is to be chosen.
A Chinese Proverb states that there is an invisible red thread that connects those destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but never break. In "Mama's Wish/Daughter's Wish", the thread of love between mother and child weaves throughout the book with Chinese translation so their story can be shared around the world, for all families and those who wait.
