Novelist Vanessa Diffenbaugh adopted her son when he was 25-years-old. That’s not surprising at all if you know  her. Diffenbaugh writes books but she rescues hearts. She created the Camellia Network after her first novel “The Language of Flowers.” The non-profit  helps children who “age-out” of foster care at 18-years-old and are then left on their own.  She talks with Steve Bertrand on Books about her latest novel “We Didn’t Ask for Wings,” about her help for abandoned kids and about her bouncing “baby” boy.
