The Tummy Mummy
by Michelle Madrid-Branch
Illustrated by Marin Thurber

"Sweet, moving, and beautifully illustrated, The Tummy Mummy, is a poignant rendering of a birth mother sharing her child with a waiting adoptive couple. It is a great book for snuggling up with your child to read when he or she is old enough to understand adoption."

-Mardie Caldwell, host, Let's Talk Adoption


Parents Wanted
by George Harrar

"Parents Wanted gives adoptive parents a new perspective on the pre-teen view of adoption. Insightful, delightful, and a wonderful read, I highly recommend Parents Wanted"

- Mardie Caldwell, host, Let's Talk Adoption.


I Love You Like Crazy Cakes
by Rose Lewis

Based on the author's own experiences, this heartfelt story follows a single woman on her journey to adopt a baby girl from China. The narrative chronicles the baby's trip from a shared crib in a big room filled with many other babies to her own crib in her own room in her new home. The delicate watercolor pictures of I Love You Like Crazy Cakes perfectly complement the charming text. This book is a celebration of the love and joy a baby brings into the world.
