At BPAR, books are near and dear to our hearts. Not only are our shelves overflowing with well-worn, dog-eared favorites, but we continually scope out new titles and write book reviews about the best of the new crop.
That said, there's a particular book we yearned for but could never find, one that gives the child adoptee a voice and lets him speak to his parents through the pages. In 2017 we wrote and illustrated this book ourselves. Please visit our Adoption Is a Lifelong Journey page to meet Charlie, our narrator, learn about the resources we included in the back of the book, read the independent reviews (quite an honor!), and hear our author story about what it's really like for three people — Kelly, Jennifer, and Katie — to collaborate on writing a book. Wannabe authors, you'll be intrigued!
