November is Adoption Month and Canada has 30,000 children and youth in permanent foster care. This book provides adopted children with the answers they need to develop a healthy self-image and truly know just how incredible and unique their story is.


From the author:
"The motivation for writing this book was to empower my daughter with the answers she would need to develop a healthy self-image. My daughter was adopted as a newborn and my goal as her mother is to daily ensure that she feels safe and secure with her story.
Every child has a story. My role, as a mother, is to ensure each one of my children know just how incredible and unique their story is. This story reflects our unique journey of being a inter- cultural family involving a private, open adoption. Every adoption and every family is unique."
