9781849057783: Forever Fingerprints: An Amazing Discovery for Adopted Children

Heart-warming and playful, Forever Fingerprints shows how adoptive parents can use a common occurrence--a relative's pregnancy--as a springboard for discussions about birth parents.
 
Lucie is excited to feel a baby moving in her Aunt Grace's tummy but it makes her think about her adoption story in a different way. The tools offered in this book help adoptive parents assist their children in creating a unique connection to them and her birth parents. By helping their daughter feel safe to share upsetting feelings, they reinforce their love for her while honoring her past. 

This book is ideal for adopted children aged 4-8.

Book Description:

Uplifting picture book about an adopted child who realises that her fingerprints give her a special connection to her birth parents

From the Author:

Forever Fingerprints is my favorite book among all I've undertaken to write. It's my favorite because it meets a deep need within every adopted child for a physical sense of connection with their birth family.But, how can this happen if the adoption is international, with no birth history. How can it happen domestically where there has been secrecy?Lucie's parents show how that need is met through the story of her forever fingerprints. An added perk of the book is that it meets a deep need of adoptive parents--to know how and when to talk adoption with their children.I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it!
