Item description for Now We Are One: Faces of International Adoption by Marguerite Gieseke David Wecker...

More than 20,000 children immigrate to the United States each year to begin a new life with adoptive parents. Most are quite young--less than a year old--and nine out of 10 have not yet reached their fourth birthday.

Now We Are One is a photographic essay of 15 Cincinnati families who have found joy from international adoption. Immigrating from all parts of the globe--Africa, South Korea, Gautemala, China, India, Hong Kong, and Russia--the story of each child shows that genetics mean little, and love means a lot.

Through touching essays by former Cinicinnati Post columnist David Wecker, and filled with powerful photographs by Cincinnati photographer Michael Wilson, Now We Are One captures the warmth and love that bind each family together.

Coming from wildly different backgrounds and remarkable circumstances, these children have found roles as sons, daughters, brothers, and sisters, as well as comedians, competitors, soccer players, smart-alecks, singers, peacemakers, artists, and caretakers--all the things that, given the chance, most kids do become, all in the process of becoming part of something larger than themselves.

As Marguerite Gieseke, who writes the book's foreword, notes, "In recent years, international adoption by celebrities--while admirable in itself--has become tabloid fodder and created a circus atmosphere that misrepresents reality for thousands of ordinary families."

Now We Are One seeks to restore a peaceful atmosphere by showing the simple, remarkably ordinary ways these amazing children have become vital members of their families. Each page reveals the simplistic and beautiful ways they go from being little faces no one notices to becoming absolutely indispensable.

Reviews - What do customers think about Now We Are One: Faces of International Adoption?

Highly recommended, especially for anyone considering an international adoption for a family of their own.  Oct 5, 2007
More than 1.50 million children in the United States are adopted. These include more than 20,000 international adoptions every year. While 64% of these adoptions are girls and 36% are boys, nearly half of all international adopted children are infants, and 90% of international adoptees being less than five years old. Featuring an essay by Melissa Fay Greene, "Now We Are One: Faces of International Adoption" is a compendium of photographs by Michael Wilson with a bit of informational text by Cincinnati Post columnist David Wecker. The focus is on the stories and images of ordinary families in Cincinnati, Ohio. Fifteen families demonstrate the reality of American families adopting children from other countries and is a far cry from the circus atmosphere of some recent Hollywood celebrity foreign adoptions. Here are pictorially documented adoptions that focus on the simple, ordinary ways children from diverse (and sometimes horrific) backgrounds have become integrated as vital and beloved members of their new American families. Highly recommended, especially for anyone considering an international adoption for a family of their own.
