New Title Alert: Personalized Adoption Story

Twigtale has launched a new title to help families share and celebrate their adoption story.

My Adoption Story was authored by Wendy Denham, PhD, who draws on her years of experience working with families that grow through adoption, fertility or surrogacy.

The purpose of this book is to introduce young children to their adoption story and to celebrate that all families grow in their very own way. The narration gives the parents (or parent) the opportunity to describe their decision to adopt, the excitement leading up to their child’s arrival, as well as, details about how the family came together.

The narration is designed to embrace a child’s curiosity and desire to understand their “story.”  It offers an opportunity for parents to show their openness to talk about the child’s story, which includes the adoption specifics. Details are kept fairly simple, and the narrative is designed to provide a secure foundation for the child and parent to build on together as the child grows.  The narrative indicates that the parents are available for their child’s questions – helping the child realize that the parents are an invaluable emotional resource as they integrate their story and the story of their family.

Please share this with friends that may find it relevant!

We'd love to hear your Adoption story and how you share and celebrate it!  Also, we are trying to get the word out about this unique resource, so if you know any individuals or organizations that would find this useful, please let us know at  Thank you!
