About this product
- DescriptionDoss's charming, touching, and at times hilarious chronicle tells how each of the children, representing white, Chinese, Japanese, Filipi, Korean, Mexican, and Native American backgrounds, came to her and husband Carl, a Methodist minister. She writes of the way the unwanted feeling was erased with devoted love and understanding and how the children united into one happy family. Her account reads like a vel, with scenes of hard times and triumphs described in vivid prose. The Family Nobody Wanted, which inspired two films, opened doors for other adoptive families and was a popular favorite among parents, young adults, and children for more than thirty years. Now this edition will introduce the classic to a new generation of readers. An epilogue by Helen Doss that updates the family's progress since 1954 will delight the book's loyal legion of fans around the world.
