When Mama and Daddy bring home a new baby, Adeline, big sister Alice isn’t too sure about her. At first, there’s too much crying, and later, Adeline struggles to speak. But as Alice watches her sister grow, she comes to realize that words aren’t the only way to understand her. Waiting for Adeline is a story of patience, connection, love, and the bonds that can grow from adversity.
