The story was originally put together as a Christmas gift for Mr. Busby's wife. Mr. Busby says "It was a way to gently tell the truth to our daughter about how we came together as a family." In sharing this personal story, the authors hope to provide a starting point for discussions between other adoptive parents and their daughters from China. To this end, the often complex adoption process is simplified to help moms and dads describe "what happened" to their children. The authors believe that adoptive families should tell their own story in a sensitive but open dialogue. Thus the story is punctuated with several questions to elicit imaginative responses from children about what they think the little girl might do when she gets older. Most of all, the authors hope you enjoy the story - Carson's story - and the story of so many of her sisters that still come from China.
