Présentation de l'éditeur

Jonquil and Bryan Graham began with the idea of fostering a few New Zealand children; after all, they had an ideal home for them in a rambling old house in a kiwifruit orchard in Golden Bay. Shocked by the plight of thousands of abandoned children, she helped initiate I-CANZ (Inter-country Adoption New Zealand), challenging the government's anti-adoption stance. When harrowing scenes of abandoned Romanian babies rocking in cots appeared on TV, she flew to Romania and adopted malnourished identical twin girls who weighed 4 kgs at 10 months. Leaving her husband to run the orchard and care for eight children she returned to Romania to adopt a baby boy no-one wanted. But the ordeal turned into a prolonged nightmare as she battled the court system, determined to fight on and denying terrible accusations made against her. Returning to New Zealand, a Russian doctor she rescued told her about orphanages in his country. Later, she flew to Arghangelsk and adopted eight-year old orphaned twins.

This candid account - funny, heart-warming and always readable, shows us the tragedy of children without families and the difference that true parenting parents as well as to children. Love fairly jumps off the pages of this book, along with the ups and downs of family life.

The first of Jonquil's books that I read, and cried through, and laughed through and lived through. That Jonquil could have the presence of mind to share the story of her amazing family whilst dealing with bureaucracy, and a growing family, and living in the fairly remote area of the South Island of NZ where a trip to the supermarket was an all day event - the woman blows my mind. Well done, Jonquil, and keep them coming!!

I just want everyone to read it. Jonquil Graham is an amazing, inspiring woman. I love the way she wrote the dialog and the way in which her family, including her extended family, worked together as a team. I cried at the dark tragedy which was Romania and laughed at the light-hearted humorous incidences with the children.

What a wonderful book!! I couldn't stop reading it! The author tells about adopting nine children in a very honest, heartfelt, and entertaining way. We have also adopted a son from Romania, so it was very interesting to read. However, I recommend this book for everyone -not just those who have adopted.

Like many self-published works, this one is rambling and not well written. The author discusses herself far more than the fascinating kids. Indeed, the children often seem to be a means of drawing attention to the foster/adoptive mother who never misses an opportunity to contact the media. Too much content is devoted to silly dialogue, mostly humorous statements the kids allegedly made. Probably the best part is her four month trip to Romania when she leaves infants behind to acquire more children. The lady is very adept at fundraising and married to a sweet, passive man who putters on the farms and cares for the kids during the wife's frequent absences. Still, the kids are better off with some attention-seeking mom than left in their native countries. Glad I found this book as a freebie.
