Ladybug Love: 100 Chinese Adoption Match Day Stories

Written by Kat LaMons & Trish Diggins

Need a little love? We’ve got you covered. Live vicariously through the personal stories of 100 individual families at the exact moment they “met” the newest addition to their family! “Ladybug Love” chronicles both the challenges of international adoption (crushing paperwork, dueling bureaucracies) and the agony of seemingly endless waiting, and the best part – the magical moment when a face in a picture becomes part of a forever family.


“The only thing I didn’t like about this book is I hated when the stories ended… I really wanted to know what happens next! Ladybug Love is a sweet, charming book that’s captivating from start to finish. The book is a wonderful ride – every story is different, with ups and downs and twists and turns – then when it’s over, the happiness and joy of each of the parents shines through. I’d highly recommend this book and can’t wait to see what the authors come out with next!” – Bridget Schoppert, Adoptive Aunt

“The Author Visits doesn’t normally accept requests to review non-fiction works but I couldn’t pass this book up. There is something about a series of stories that touch the humanity in all of us and that is very hard not to embrace. Ladybug Love is one such book. I have no experience about the process of adoption nor do I know what it feels like to wait for that moment when a phone call can change the course of a life, to go from being singular to plural. I have no sense of the apprehension and toll waiting can take for that one magical match call on the parents to be. To me, these are experiences of being those special parents who have immeasurable hope for a dream that I am so lucky to have shared in Ladybug Love. Reading the many stories about match day was both heart wrenching and uplifting as couples described their experiences. I cannot lie when I say I laughed and cried in equal measure as one story after the next described the years, months, weeks, days and hours before the agency calls came and dreams of becoming parents were finally realized. Ladybug Love is one tale after another of never-ending hope and resilience in the most simplest stories evoking all sorts of emotional highs and lows. I am so pleased Kat and Trish shared their lovely little treasure trove of wishes coming true. Simply written with a high-impact quotient, I highly recommend Ladybug Love: 100 Chinese Adoption Match Day Stories. Think of this book as the Chicken Soup for everybody’s soul. It’s perfect in every way a good book should be with a great plot, lots of twists and turns and filled with emotions a hundred times over.” – TheAuthorVisits.com
