Meili, who is six years old and adopted from China, learns that her parents are going to adopt a baby from Haiti. Meili isn't happy. Their family is just right as it is. But as Meili begins to accept the idea of a sibling, she realizes the importance of being a big sister and finds that a new addition can be just right for their family too.
"Meili thinks her multiracial, adoptive family is just right as it is, and she doesn't want her parents to adopt a new baby…But...when they return [from Haiti] with baby Sophie…Meili welcomes her as a sister. The affirming vision of adoptive sibling bonding is welcome. A book to broaden collections about families."
Kirkus, February 2018
"Lopez’ succinct text approaches adoption from a young child’s perspective, emphasizing several reassuring themes. Chen’s colorful, cartoon-style art effectively conveys Meili’s various emotions. This succeeds as a new-sibling story and will be welcomed by interracial adoptive families."
