From Booklist:

McElderry's story of her adoption of two Romanian orphans is certainly not a romanticized one. Accompanied by her physician-spouse, wheelchair-bound McElderry traveled from their home in Alaska only to arrive in Romania and find that adoptions from orphanages were closed because their directors worried that international gifts would cease and they would be out of work. Baby marketing continued in private adoptions by poverty-stricken parents and social outcasts, including Gypsies. Highly critical of the U.S. government, embassy personnel, and distortions by American media, McElderry speaks bluntly of the shysters (Romanian and American) and fondly of the people who assisted her and many others who feel compelled to care for Romanian children. Denise Perry Donavin
