    1. Bette Crosby

      "ABC Adoption and Me" may look like a children's book, but it is so much more. It is a MUST READ for all adoptive families, because it not only talks about the elements of adoption in a way a child can understand, it also instructs adoptive parents on how to use the book. The issues this book addresses are very real to adopted children and when they are not addressed, they can lead to questions, confused feelings and resentment in later years.The story is presented in short, easy to understand p [...]

      A TREASURE for everyone touched by adoption!I read ABC, Adoption & Me to my toddler (adopted in 2010) last night. We loved it! The adoptive mother-adoptee daughter writing duo uses a normal, comfortable, safe topic (the alphabet) as a springboard for age-appropriate discussions of complex, intimate, emotional topics innate in adoption. The lively illustrations engaged my child. The colorful characters on each page frame and enhance the content. I honestly believe that this book, though writt [...]

      First of all (for those who don’t know) I am adopted and so I like it when I see an adoption book done really well. I really like that the book shows the huge diversity in adoptive families. It also covers all kinds of questions, issues and happy things too. Being adopted myself, some of the issues I could relate to (like “R is for real. My birth parents and my adoptive parents are all real.” I personally don’t like it when someone asks who my “real” parents are. Last time I got grou [...]

      ABC Adoption is the perfect book for anyone going through the process of adopting a child. With years of experience as an adoptive mother, Gayle and her adopted daughter, Casey have created an excellent resource for families going through the adoption process. Together they used their positive adoption experience to create a brilliant ABC book that is filled with tender, loving messages, and beautiful illustrations. I added a copy of this book to my first grade classroom library because adoption [...]

      Must have for families in the adoption process. Gentle themes, wonderful illustrations are a great starting point for discussion between young children and their families. I gave ABC to my foster nephew and he and his nearly adoptive mom were THRILLED. He immediately opened the book and pointed out the "B" It is perfect for them as he is just learning his letters. For slightly older children, the pictures and ideas will help in exploring the complex feelings they face. Give someone you love this [...]

    8. Kathy Clark

      I would highly recommend this book to adoptive families, or families who are considering adoption with kids already in the home. As an Adoption Worker, I really appreciated the language used in this book, as it is extremely inclusive and adoption competent. I also appreciate how diverse the families in the pictures are and how the story reads to more than just children who were adopted as infants domestically, but also kids who were adopted internationally or at older ages. I appreciate the hone [...]

      I received this book as a gift in a giveaway promotion. The author is an adoptive mother and adoption coach/consultant. She wrote the book with her adopted daughter. The wonderful relationship they share comes through in the text message.Mother and daughter want to express the special bond shared by adoption families, while not ignoring the place of the birth family. Presented in a simple ABC format the book format will appeal to a young child, yet contained within letter are more complex emotio [...]

      What a wonderful book. I highly recommend this well-written and illustrated book. Gayle Swift has written an uplifting book that answers many questions parents have in talking with their adopted children.

    12. Laura Sanchez

      This book is full of great information for adoptive families. The collaboration of adoptive mother and adopted child as authors gives a well-rounded picture of what it means to be part of a family touched by adoption. I can see that it would be a great tool for starting conversations, broaching difficult topics (“U…sometimes it is hard to understand why I was adopted”), and celebrating some of adoption's beautiful aspects (“X's…stand for the hugs we share as a family). I love that it s [...]
