A book for every parent who wants their children to understand adoption.

Adoption is a key story that's close to our hearts. 

Having used many story books to help our children understand their adoption journey, nothing seemed to cover the whole journey from the child's perspective.

After showing the book to families and professionals, it was clear this story would be perfect for those adoptive families with younger children, as a soft and sensitive warm up to life story work.

This way they can understand the concept of adoption first, making it easier for parents to help them understand their own life story. Endorsed by Adoption UK, recommended by clinical psychologists. 

Told through the eyes of two little bears who go on a 'typical' adoption journey, their happy ending is important for children going through their own journeys to have hope and also for friends, families and schools to understand their journeys better.
