Little Branch

I’ve read quite a few adoption books and the one I’m currently working my way through is “20 Things Adoptive Parents Need to Succeed” by Sherrie Eldridge. It doesn’t have my universal recommendation, but I do like that it discusses foster child adoption as well as infant adoption. It offers lots of creative ideas for discussing adoption with your children. One the chapters features a short story called “Little Branch”, which I recently read to BE and BC. BE asked to read it several times and we talked about the symbolism in the story. She proudly told J that it was about adoption and even explained parts of it. Anyone out there with children adopted through the foster care system might find it useful.
