Good Read: Baby, We Were Meant for Each Other by Scott Simon
In this warm, funny, and wise new book, NPR’s award-winning and beloved Scott Simon tells the story of how he and his wife found true love with two tiny strangers from the other side of the world. It’s a book of unforgettable moments: when Scott and Caroline get their first thumb-size pictures of their daughters, when the small girls are placed in their arms, and all the laughs and tumbles along the road as they become a real family.
Mark Welch says:
“Scott Simon is a remarkable man – an award-winning broadcaster and host of NPR’s Weekend Edition, author, a devoted husband to Caroline, and father of two beautiful daughters, Elise and Lina. His latest book is Baby, We Were Meant for Each Other: In Praise of Adoption. Simon tells their story of adopting two daughters from China after his wife was unable to conceive in the “traditional Abraham-and-Sarah-begat manner” and deciding there are already children in this world who needed them. And, he adds, “we sure need them.” I had the privilege of interviewing Simon recently. He said that Elise & Lina “re-wired” their new parents, making them hopelessly in love and completely devoted to these tiny strangers from the other side of the world. An added bonus in the book are the stories of other adoptive families. Some are famous (NPR sports commentator Frank Deford) and some are not, but each family’s experience captures the tenor of the first sentence of Baby, We Were Meant for Each Other: Adoption is a miracle.”
