"Three Names of Me"

Mixed emotions
At last, a book has been written to help adopted adolescents from other countries explore their blended cultural identities.

When Mary Cummings and Tom Breitenbucher were preparing to adopt a baby from China 11 years ago, they named her Ada before they met her.

Cummings never dreamed that decision would be the impetus for "Three Names of Me." Her new book, which is receiving wide praise for its poetic text and soft illustrations (by Lin Wang), is aimed at girls ages 8-13 who were born in China and adopted in the U.S.
