SPIRIT BABY by Nina Little – Spotlight


“There’s an ancient Chinese belief that women possess two hearts. It’s said that women hold dreams of infants, lost children, and babies never-meant-to-be in their upper hearts, while babies destined to be born travel to their mother’s lower heart. My upper heart was full of lost babies and broken dreams. But the promise of a Chinese baby girl was beginning to fill my upper heart with hope.” SPIRIT BABY

Nina Hill takes up through the ups and downs of trying to have a child in SPIRIT BABY. When Nina and Chris step off the plane onto Chinese soil, they are a couple in crisis. Fleeing the heartbreak of failed fertility treatments and the silence of their childless home, they arrive in Beijing just in time for the annual spring sand storms. As they travel from the historic cities of northern China to the stunning countryside of southern China, Nina finds new wonders in the world.

Part humorous travelogue, part heartfelt memoir, Spirit Baby weaves together themes of longing, loss, and learning to live again, while celebrating the healing benefits of travel. Most of all, it tells of the power of a couple’s dream for a child and celebrates the many paths to motherhood.

Life can take a toll…but that doesn’t mean the journey’s not worth taking…

Have some tissues nearby…



I live in the foothills of Colorado with my husband, twins (one girl and one boy), two large mutts, numerous koi fish, and a rather pompous bearded dragon. Thanks to my upbringing in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I love anything Latin: food, music and especially dancing. I enjoy skiing, running and am addicted to Zumba. I dream of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and meeting some wild elephants, taking my daughter to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower and my son to Legoland, and returning to China with my family by my side.

  2. My one pregnancy resulted in a beautiful baby boy who grew into an amazing son! Sadly to say, two of my friends lost their babies, both by miscarriages and one of them carried a baby nine months, but the baby was stillborn! One of them adopted children and is an amazing mother, the other never had anymore pregnancies! Thanks for the chance!

  3. Both of my beautiful nieces were adopted from China. Thank you for the chance to read and review this book.


  4. This sounds like a beautiful book. I actually know two families who adopted children from China. One family went back a second time for a second little girl, so the two girls would grow up as close sisters.
