Most of us know Scott Simon as the host of NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday.

But in his new book "Baby, we were meant for each other" he explores another hugely important part of his life - as an adoptive father.

Simon and his wife Caroline adopted their two daughters from China.

Simon told Euan Kerr that while adoption has always been with us, he wrote the book to examine how things have changed in recent years.
