Because every adopted child needs to know their story.

Adoptees can end up with a floating or numb sensation when they have no understanding of their past history or roots. I should know. I spent my first five months in foster care before getting adopted. I listened carefully to the silence that was to follow for most of my childhood regarding adoption.

“Who am I?" and "How am I a part of this family?" were the questions I never found words for. Adoptees so often have that sense of missing pieces. Learn more about how lifebooks help adoptees.

As an adult, my social work career landed in adoption 30 years ago. I learned how to make lifebooks for children and teens in foster care. My growing-up-adopted experience coupled with my professional adoption wisdom resulted in the creation of this easy-to-read, all-encompassing lifebook guide in 2001. It's now in its 6th printing!
