    My boys are from Romania. One of them just finished a documentaryon Romanian adoptions titled "Born To Be Our Children". We arelooking forward to reading this.

    Being an international adoptee myself, this book is insightful and emotionally raw. One thing I loved about it is that Izidor provides historical context of how Romania got to where they are today with adoption. It is very helpful to understand background when you read through the words of what a boy is feeling and thinking as he navigates the world through the adoption lens. Although my experience is not the same as Izidor's (being Korean adopted), this book was a page-turner and I would recommend it to anyone who has or is thinking about adoption. At the very least, it provides food for thought; especially adopting out of Eastern Europe. Bravo Izidor.

    Once you start reading this book, you won't want to put it down! I've recently educated myself on the orphan situation in Romania and after watching several of the videos highlighting Izidor Ruckel, I decided that I wanted to get the book. This book is a journey and you can't help but to paint a mental picture as you read it. Izidor takes you on a journey through his time at the orphanage and beyond. The details are key to fully understanding the seriousness of his story and this book highlights the struggles he and his friends endured. You will find yourself emotionally invested in the story and it positions you to take a stand for the voiceless Romanian orphans. I would definitely read it again and again and look forward to a follow up story to learn about his accomplishments to present day.

    Reading Izidor’s book has given me a true picture of what it was like to be a child in a Romanian orphanage. Only someone who has lived through this can truly explain what it was like. Izidor did an excellent job explaining what he was feeling from a child's perspective. As an adoptive parent, it gave me a better understanding of what my child may have experienced. Throughout the book I could see the great strength Izidor has and the hope he never let go. Anyone who questions if international adoptions should be reopened needs to read this book. Izidor is an inspiration who deeply cares about children's rights, and he is a great example of what is possible for someone who believes they can make a difference for others.Jodi SleinAdoptive Parent (Romania)Maryland

    Deeply insightful and sincere, Izidor has opened the door into a world that very few people ever thought existed - the truth about a orphan's life. One can only count their blessings, reading through the words that he poured out of his heart while traveling back memory lane. What an amazing individual and great example for all of us... a role model for all the children left behind.I have received Izidor's book as a gift at an event in New York aimed to fundraise money for Romanian children. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about adoption, read about a human being's inner power to survive & thrive and to be part of a larger mission to help Romanian orphans. Thank you for sharing your mission with the world Izidor!

    In this autobiography Izidor relates his life journey always keeping the love for those from his past in the Romanian orphanage at his heart's center.
