Q: Can you recommend picture books about open adoption?
A: Here are two children’s books that we like:
- Sam’s Sister, by Juliet C. Bond (Perspectives Press). Five-year-old Rosa shares the excitement of her brother’s birth, and of getting to know the family her mother chose to adopt him.
- Megan’s Birthday Tree, by Laurie Lears (Albert Whitman & Co.). Megan’s birth mother finds a special way to assure the young girl that their relationship will always be important, no matter how their families change.
