Reviews - What do customers think about Vanilla Mommy?
Adoption is cool Dec 20, 2005
Wow, this was really a terrific book. There is such a realness from the stories that are shared. I enjoyed the stories about a white woman going to a black church and the whole problem with the little girl's hair was so funny. It was very cute. I laughed and cried and smiled throughout.
Truly Heart Felt Mar 1, 2005
It was hard to put this book down, and when I had finished reading it, my heart and spirit had been truly touched by Bradie Moore's very personal insights into the cultural and spiritial transformations she experienced during the bi-ratial adoption process.
Absolutely wonderful Jan 29, 2005
This is a must read for anyone who has or is considering a bi-racial adoption or would just like to receive a glimpse into the life of this woman and her experience. This book takes the reader from the authors novice beginnings that make the reader laugh until tears stream, all the way to the profound depth that Bradie Moore takes us into. She shares her relationship with her daughter, her frustrations and triumphs on bringing her home, her faith and the wonderful relationships she has built between two cultures. Highly recommended reading!
