A is for Always. With your hand in mine,
Adoption’s a gift that will last for all time.

With gentle rhymes and lovely illustrations, A Is for Always celebrates the joy and love of adoption from A to Z. With B for birth parents, Q for questions, and U for understanding, it frames challenging aspects of adoption in a way children can understand. Best of all, each page shows a different adoptive family of cuddly animals welcoming and cherishing a new child.
