Book Description

Love finds a way. After eight years of marriage and six years of infertility treatments, Carmelo and Patricia Tartivita sign on to adopt a child internationally. The mystery and romance of the Orient entices them to choose China. A child from China sounds romantic. The romance of adopting a child is replaced with the reality of paperwork. Adoption is forms, bureaucracies and waiting. Two years later, the day of departure arrives. They’re off to China emotionally unprepared, intellectually incapacitated and woefully short of baby supplies. They’re dizzy with excitement to meet their child.The baby adventure begins. Seen through the eyes of a new father, The Nanchang Diary is an unexpected adventure in the raw beauty of China and in the joys and fears of parenthood. Like all new parents, Carmelo and Patricia have to come to terms with a wonderful, new reality — life with a child.
