The purpose of this book is to introduce young children to their adoption story and to celebrate that all families grow in their very own way. The narration gives the parents (or parent) the opportunity to describe their decision to adopt, the excitement leading up to their child’s arrival as well as details about how the family came together.
The narration is designed to embrace a child’s curiosity and desire to understand their “story.” It offers an opportunity for parents to show their openness to talk about the child’s story, which includes the adoption specifics. Details are kept fairly simple, and the narrative is designed to provide a secure foundation for the child and parent to build on together as the child grows. The narrative indicates that the parents are available for their child’s questions – helping the child realize that the parents are an invaluable emotional resource as they integrate their story and the story of their family.
