How do you answer an adopted child’s questions when they ask – “Who is my mother?” or “where do I come from?”. This beautiful book presents a lovely and poetic way to share an explanation of the combined heritages of adoptive children.
The book is actually a poem that was submitted anonymously to the charity – Motherbridge of Love.
Located in the UK, Motherbridge of Love, was set up by prominent Chinese Journalist and author Xinran who wanted to find a way to connect adopted girls from China with their birth culture
Not only beautifully written, but elegantly illustrated by Josée Masse, the book also shares a version of the poem written in Chinese calligraphy. A wonderful find for anyone who has adopted or is considering adoption, every page of this book shares a message of the love and care that link the birth mother, the adopted mother and the child through a “motherbridge of love.”
