Summary
Two Korean baby girls are adopted by two very different American families who meet for the first time when the girls first arrive at Baltimore/Washington International Airport. The differences between the parenting styles, one a middle class, white American couple, the other Iranian-American, showcase how cultural identity is defined and developed in the U.S
Summary
A chance encounter between two families--the Donaldsons, and the Iranian-born Yasdans--at the Baltimore airport, as both couples await the arrival of an adopted daughter from Korea, prompts an examination about what it means to be an American while the lives of the two families intertwine over the years
