Children's Book on Adoption

The Mulberry Bird is the story of the love for her baby that led a birth mother to make difficult decisions for herself and her child. The message conveyed is that an adoption plan is made with a lot thinking and a whole lot of LOVE.  This book provides a gentle, non-threatening way for parents to help children talk about their feelings and thoughts about being adopted.  It is recommended that the book be shared with the adoptee's friends, siblings, and cousins.  Recommended for ages 5-12
