I'll Hold You Forever An Adoption Story

I’ll Hold You Forever: An Adoption Story

 A touching story about the beauty of adoption and the warmth of a mother’s love.

A young girl walks through the countryside when she begins to wonder:  Is Mommy her real mom?  Mommy turns the question into a story of the child’s adoption.  Soon the child is reassured that her mom is real and will hold her forever. Dawn’s simple, engaging text and charming watercolor illustrations showcase the love of a mom for her child.

This book answers questions about the adoption process, while honoring the child’s birthmother. Understanding that every child’s adoption story is unique, Dawn includes notes about how to talk to children about adoption. Dawn and her husband adopted their two daughters. She enjoys speaking about adoption and has participated in a ten year national study about adoption.
