These books are about my own family. The first book shares about how Nick loves his quilt because each patch represents a member of his family. Their love stitches them together like patchwork. My Patchwork Family is a beautiful story of a family sewn together through foster care and adoption.
My Patchwork Family and Lavender's Story tell the story of our family's journey through foster care and adoption. The first book gives a voice to an unsung heroes, the children in the families that foster. That story is about those heroes that love and accept all the kids that come to live with them when their family chooses to foster. The second book shares the story of a child in foster care searching for her forever family. It tells of the pain and sorrow along with the hope and love involved in her journey.
Our family hopes that by telling our stories, we can initiate or deepen conversations in your family about foster care and adoption in way that encourages empathy and support.
