These truly engaging, personalized books help you talk to your young child about their fostering or adoption.
These books are for toddlers and young children to around the age of four. There is no right age to start reading your book to your child. We’ve learned that when a child is told about their fostering or adoption early it becomes something ‘they’ve always known’, avoiding a big ‘reveal’ moment. We recommend you include this book as one of your bedtime story options. As your child's understanding develops over time, you will have become practiced at telling their story.
Select the version that most looks like yours. All our books are 100% editable - so you can make your book reflect your child's own story.
If you are a foster parent choose the last option.
If you have adopted your child, you need to decide if your child has an open or closed adoption.
• If your child has contact with either or both of their birth parents then choose one of the 'open' options.
• The 'open' versions allow parents to include the birth parents' names if they wish.
• However, if your child has no contact, or very limited contact, then a closed version will probably suit you better.
• Have a look at both options to see which feels best for your family.
