As the owner of the upscale children' s boutique Pretty Baby, Eleanor Sweet is surrounded by gleaming strollers, organic cotton onesies and round-bellied expectant mothers. It' s a serene atmosphere of new beginnings but for the sounds of punk and funk coming from the graffiti-splattered new record shop next door and Eleanor' s fierce desire for a baby of her own. Her wish for a child is finally granted in the form of Lily, an abandoned baby en route from Korea. But Eleanor' s husband unexpectedly backs out, and the adoption is at risk. Orphaned as a young woman herself and determined to give Lily the family she deserves, Eleanor hires Isabelle, a search angel, to find her own birth mother. What Eleanor discovers about love and family isn't what she expects but gives a new understanding of what it means to be a mother.

I really enjoyed this book about a young woman who hires a "Search Angel" to help her to find her birth mother.

She needs her birth mother's support in order to single parent a baby she wants to adopt.
