The Red Thread

There is an ancient Chinese belief which states that when a child is born an invisible red threads connect that child's soul to all those people - present and in the future - who will play a part in that child's life. As each birthday passes, those threads shorten and tighten, bringing closer those people who are fated to be together. This story is not about the realities of adoption nor is it about the actual legend. It is a completely fictional, fairy tale inspired by the legend. Please see behind the story for more of Grace's thoughts about this book.
