We See the Moon BAD009


Many adult adoptees have gone through life wanting to ask questions about their birthparents, but felt the thoughts they have might make their parents uncomfortable. Then, these questions have remained unasked and unanswered. We See the Moon opens the adoption dialog at an early age by allowing the questions in your child's heart to be asked and discussed creating the foundation for conversations to come. This is a story written from the child's perspective, asking the questions that dwell in their hearts about their birthparents. . . What do you look like? Where are you now? Do you think of me? It will help children use the moon as a private tool to connect with a family that is always with them in their hearts. "For each of us, our beginnings greatly influence who we become. For adoptees, particularly those whose beginnings were in another part of the world, the wondering is even more profound, unknown and unfamiliar. The questions of 'who am I' and 'where did I come from' are not easy to articulate or understand. This book captures the essence where no answers exist. I wish there had been We see the Moon for me to read and reassure me when I was a young adoptee. I am grateful to have it now." Susan Soon-keum Cox, Korean adoptee, Vice President Holt International Children's Services. "This lovely poetic book captures both the joy and the sadness of adoption in evocative prose and beautiful paintings. A must have for all China families and a helpful addition to children's adoption literature." Susan Caughman, founder of Families with Children from China, Editorial Director of Adoptive Families Magazine. Illustrations are selected from Jinshan Peasant Paintings. You can purchase the cards featuring these paintings too.
