With more than 400,000 children in foster care in the US alone, thousands of kids struggle to find their forever families. Even those who are adopted experience heavy emotions that are difficult to understand. These children are asking,
Why did I have to be adopted?
Do my adopted parents actually love me? Will they give me away?
Why do my friends make fun of me for being adopted?
Carey Koenig, along with her adopted children Reid and Halley want to help children realize that being adopted is awesome! Do I Belong? is a resource for kids of all ages who have been adopted from foster care who need to know that they are not alone. This resource is great for younger children to read with their parents, for teenagers, and for anyone who wants to learn more about what being adopted from foster care is all about. And best of all, they’ll hear from several different kids who have been adopted from foster care.
Kids will learn that they were adopted for a special reason and that no matter what happens, they are never alone.
