I’ve been doing a little bit of online shopping (my specialty since, well, who wants to hit Toys ‘R Us with six kidlets in tow?) and I’ve found two books that I think are worth mentioning.
The first book is just lovely to behold. Other than that, “Motherbridge of Love” is a book based on a sweet poem, by an unknown author, beautifully illustrated. It is about a birthmother and an adoptive mother, and the love they both share for the same child.
The other is a book by Todd Parr, author of the wonderful “The Okay Book”. “The Family Book” is about families of all types, adoptive, blended by marriage, one parent. I am hoping that by having books like these around for my children to read (all of them, not just our adopted children), it will open the door for future conversations about adoption, our family, and how it all makes them feel.
One thing to remember, if you shop at Amazon at ALL, be SURE to go through Love Without Boundaries site in order for them to receive a bit of the profits of the sale. It’s a great way to help without having to do a thing (except clicking on the little “Amazon” logo on the home page!) I’m doing Amazon this year for TONS of my shopping… no tax and free shipping!? It’s a busy mom’s dream come true 😉
