Mom, What Does Adopted Mean?
Matthew is a first grader who knows he is adopted, but doesn't understand why his friend is calling him the "adopted kid." He wonders what it really means to be adopted. As his parents explain adoption, Matthew has a better understanding and is able to help his friend understand as well. This is a heartwarming story for adopted children—to help encourage them and to point out the joy of adoption. This is the author's second book. Her first book, The Joy of Adoption, (Item #3369) is available for $6.99 and covers the adoption process. (18pp. full-color illus. Masthof Press, 2008.)
