This illustrated children’s book brings the beauty of international adoption to the entire family.

About this project

The number of international adoptions has steadily increased over the past decade, yet there is a surprising lack of resources to introduce the beauty of adoption to children. Adopted children want to know their story. Siblings want to know what to expect. Parents want to know how to convey the deep love they feel. This children’s book brings the beauty of international adoption to the entire family through a simple story of love for a child. It ends with resources for families exploring their own adoption journey.

The story is now written, the illustrations are being created by Jeff Brown, but we need to raise sufficient funding for the printing of this children's book. We would be grateful if you would join us!

"Being a transracial adoptive family we have not found many books that represent our point of view. I’m thankful for the way Mommy’s Heart Went Pop! celebrates adoption through a story that resembles our family. It will be a welcome addition to our kids' bookshelves."
Jason Locy, adoption advocate and author of Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society

 “As an adoptive-only mom, I’m always looking for ways to convey the love and excitement I felt over becoming our son’s mom. Mommy’s Heart Went POP! captures these emotions perfectly, allowing the entire family to celebrate and understand the blessing of adoption.” – Michele Cervone Scott, Author of Praying Through Your Adoption
