Fostered and/or Adopted 0 to 4 years

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.

Whether you are a foster parent or your child's adoption is open or closed, we hope our books help you to have conversations with your child that are as open as possible. We totally appreciate that every single family’s story is different and that you are managing yours very carefully.

We have tried to put ourselves in the child's shoes - what will they want to know, what are they worried about?

Our book for young children aims to help them understand their fostering or adoption and to talk to their parents about it.

Our book for 5- to 8-year-olds goes further in that it actively encourages children to voice any questions or worries they have.

“Easy to use and very good customer service when I had a couple of queries. Very happy with the finished product. It's great to be able to tell our son about our family journey rather than having to use a generic story.”Peter
