This simple and beautifully illustrated story is about an adopted little boy and his journey through his early years. Sensitive and likable, we’re with Eddie the moment he learns he’s adopted. At school when he is teased by bullies about being adopted, his mom coaches him through the situation, which ultimately sets the course of his life with personal empowerment. Over time, Eddie feels a strong "void" and becomes curious about his biological parents, which ultimately leads him to find out more. ADOPTED ED concludes with a section of famous people who were adopted.
Such a lovely book that helps children understand adoption and the trials that sometimes go with it. It is approached with love and honesty and helps to reassure the child that they are where they belong, regardless of where they started.
Did you know that November was National Adoption Month? What an important, life-changing event to celebrate. Adoption has become a topic that's been brought to our attention the last few years by so many celebrities who have adopted children into their homes. But, adoption has been a part of our culture for many years. I have always been so proud and fascinated by those who can put so much time and energy into pursuing adoption. There are so many children, of all ages, needing homes. They long for a loving family to take them in and 'give them a life'.
I applaud those who have the resources to be able to adopt. I absolutely adore children and would have a house full of them, if it were possible.
I thank each of you that has taken in a child or children and those who are planning to adopt. I wish you well and ask that God bless you and your family.
