Praise For Babies Come From Airports

"An absolutely beautiful book about one family and their adoption journey. This story invites readers in, celebrating their three very special 'gotcha days.' Although each of the children comes from a very different place love is the thread that weaves them together and completes their family."
-- Babies Come From Airports

“… a good resource for an engaging point of view lesson. … Written in rhyme, you can also use this book as a shared reading or in a small group/individual fluency lesson.... a sweet tale about an important family moment.”
-- NC Teacher Stuff

"… I’m super particular about books that portray adoption and I really loved this one.”
-- Pitter Patter Art

“What a sweet addition to new baby/new sibling/adoption collections! The rhyming text keeps a nice rhythm through the story; the gentle artwork makes the adult sweet and soft, and the kids excited and enthusiastic. The scrapbook look and feel adds an element of fun to the story. This is a great book to give to kids who are adopted, whose families are in the process of adopting, or to explain international adoption in general to children.”
-- Mom Read It

“… a wonderful addition for family and library collections. It should be read to encourage all children to understand that although families are different, each has its own special story.”
-- A Field Trip Life
