    The library’s picture book collection contained titles for a wide variety of ages and tastes. The library relied on parents, the letter said, to screen library materials for their children. The library also retained The Waiting Dog in its collection with no change to its classification or department. The Waiting Child, by Cindy Champnella is an inspiring true story about her adoptive daughter who convinces her family to return to China to rescue a little boy she could not forget. The Champnella’s went to China in to adopt a 4-year-old girl, in spite of all the well-intentioned warnings they’d heard about adopting older children.
