My Children's book about Adoption
When Berrett and I first began this adoption journey, I was talking about it to his family. Our 9 year old nephew was talking to us about adoption and had several misconceptions. He thought a baby would be placed on our doorstep, or that a child might run away from home and we could then adopt them.
I do a lot of my creative thinking in the shower, LOL! Anyway, I was in the shower and thinking about all the new words of adoption that are now a part of our vocabulary. I was contemplating teaching our some day child about Adoption, birth parents, etc and this book was born! It uses the ABC's to explain simply words and phrases that are common in today's world of adoption. It is self published and all proceeds will go to our adoption fund. The books are only $10 and you can click on the link and preview some of the pages. I hope that it can be used to teach any child about adoption. I hope a long with a future Life book it may also give us a way to talk about the different aspects of adoption with our child comfortably. If you have a child in your life who is adopted or may be contemplating adoption, or just want to support a good cause, please consider buying my book.
Please let me know what you think! Also I would appreciate you sharing this post and Link on your own blogs, emails or social networks you belong to. We want as many people as possible to learn about adoption. Thanks!
