I am in the process of of authoring & self-publishing a series of books for early elementary-age adoptees entitled “Adoptees Like Me.” Twelve books are planned, featuring young adoptees from an array of backgrounds! You’ll get to know:
MARIE (she/her) is a young Black adoptee being raised by a single mother – she loves arts, crafts & reading!
NOAH (he/him) is a young East Asian adoptee being raised by a mother & father – he loves riding his scooter, making comics, playing video games, and gardening!
ALEX (they/them) is a young South American adoptee being raised by two moms – they love outer space, nature, and martial arts!
CASEY (he/him) is a young multiracial adoptee being raised by divorced parents – he loves singing, dancing, music, and fashion!
MATEO (he/him) is a young Latinx adoptee being raised by his grandparents – he loves cooking and science!
JESS (she/her) is a young white adoptee being raised by two dads – she loves playing basketball in her wheelchair and swimming!
I’m excited to work with Penny Weber on the project, an amazing illustrator who is personally connected to the adoption community! Anticipated release of the first book is 2022, so check back for details on ordering!
