One of the Best Books on Adoption Apr 12, 2008
This is one of several children's books written by the actress Jamie Lee Curtis, and I think it is the one you should start with. It is tender, loving, and funny. Nearly everyone should be able to relate to either the parent or the child in the story.
Fortunately, we discovered the audio version first.The Jamie Lee Curtis CD Audio Collection: Is There Really a Human Race?, When I Was Little, Tell Me About the Night I Was Born, Today I Feel Silly, Where ... Go?, I'm Gonna Like Me, It's Hard to Be Five The CD is a wonderful collection READ BY THE AUTHOR! You really get to meet another side of Jamie Lee, the mother side. It turns out that she is not only a very talented scary movie actress, but she can also channel the child in herself with her writing!
WONDERFUL! Apr 6, 2008
I recommend this book to all adoptive parents. It's so endearing and everything your looking for in a book for "us". :)
Wonderful book for both new adoptive parents and adoptees Mar 11, 2008
I found this book many years ago and picked it up for myself. I was adopted when I was 5 and am very fortunate. This book really does show how special are adoptive children. I've since bought about 6 copies (also had to replace the one my dog ate!). I've used it as a gift to various friends who have adopted as a way to share the adoption story with their child so that they knew how very special they are.
I love this story! Jan 10, 2008
My daughter always likes to hear my story about the day she was born and when I saw this book on this site I just had to get it. I couldn't wait to read it to my daughter and interject my very own story. What a wonderful way to talk about the love of life with the love of our lives...our chidren! Thanks Jamie Lee!
Adoption Nov 2, 2007
I love this book. It was recommended to us by our adoption agency. I am hoping it will help explain adoption to my 6 month old. She is too young to understand yet, but I read the book to her often. She loves the bright colors!! I haven't seen a sweeter story about adoption for children....I get choked up everytime we read it!!!
