Chicken Soup for the Adopted Soul Feb 18, 2008
If the rest of the stories are as touching and emotional as "It Was You" by Ana Hays then I look forward to reading the entire book with interest.
"It Was You" touched my soul and reminded me of the joys and sorrows of life. It make me cry.
A touching story Feb 13, 2008
Chicken Soup for the Adopted Soul is a warm and touching read across a wide spectrum of people and unique and touching situations. "It Was You" on page 308, was the story of the culmination of a very long search for Ana Hay's birth mother as she lay in critical condition in a hospital in Duluth. Ana's portrayal of the day's events and the very first communication with her birth mother are gripping and certainly provide a lot of questions for the reader, as well.
