Two families awaiting the arrival of their adopted infant daughters from Korea become interwined, and the story that follows sheds a penetrating light on the American way as seen from two perspectives, those who are born here and those who are still struggling to fit in.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Digging to America was actually about 2 women who meet each other at the airport – picking up their daughters from South Korea!! The book then details how the families evolved and intertwined. Two things I found really interesting. One was that one family instilled more Korean culture on their daughter, while the other let the child really just be herself – and the differences between the girls was quite something. Also the difference between the children coming home after a Korean adoption and a Chinese adoption. Unfortunately the Chinese daughter in the book was a little behind and was not bonding as well as the Korean daughter. I think it is a nice read for anyone, especially for those who have already or are in the process of adopting from South Korea.
