From the Inside Flap
For adopted children, learning about their beginnings and how they understand what that means to them is a process. It doesn¹t happen at one point in time, but rather throughout the experiences of life. In this heartwarming children¹s book, Forever Fingerprints uses a common occurrence a relative¹s pregnancy as a springboard for discussions on birthparents, where adopted children are before they are born, and how that makes one little girl feel about it.Lucie is excited to feel a baby moving in her Aunt Grace¹s tummy but it makes her think of how she understands her adoption story in a different way. The tools offered in this book help her to create a unique connection to her birthparents, allow how she is feeling to surface and to be discussed, and give Lucie¹s parents the chance to reinforce their love for her, to empathize with her feelings and to honor her past.Sherrie Eldridge Her adoptive grandmother, the social worker on her case, placed her in the loving arms of her mom and dad at ten days of age. Never in her wildest dreams did Sherrie imagine carrying her own granddaughter by adoption, Megan Grace, in her arms. Affectionately known as ³Mimi² to all her grandchildren, she is more convinced than ever that adoptees share a special bond, no matter the age span. Just as her highly acclaimed book Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew blends authenticity and tenderhearted compassion for parents and the children they have adopted, so does this book, written just for you.Rob Williams He started his career as a fashion illustrator nearly 30 years ago.

I love books that offer more ways to start a conversation about adoption, birthfamilies and feelings, as well as give the message to our kids that the loss part of adoption and any grief they may feel is okay to discuss. Thank you, Sherrie for writing one for the kids!!
