About the Book

All children around the world ask the same question: Where do babies come from? And all around the world people have answered with similar whimsy.   The stork brought you.  I found you in a hollow log.  You were left on the doorstep.  But  today babies come form even stranger places.  From China, Russia, Ecuador, Mexico, Korea, Africa, and other lands, they are brought "home" to their families.  From test tubes to surrogates, to yes, even grandmothers, they find their ways. From Moses in the bullrushes to Romulus and Remus to Superman, our beginnings, our journeys and our families are miraculous  blessings however they happen.
