Heartlines is a book to help children with that gnawing question that can undermine attachments and self-esteem. Is love in adoption the same as the love in families made from bloodlines? Yes Yes Yes! This story explains how love really works and how Forever Family love is as strong as a 20 ton bull. Fun and lively, reassuring and a lovely way for parents to start to discuss adoption, 

"But how did your heart get to fit me inside,

I'm almost as big as a pony,

How did I squeeze in, how did I breathe?

Aren't I too wriggly and boney?"

We miss you with joy in our hearts,

It's a missing that just feels happy

As the rest of your life got to start."

"Sometimes I snuggle into Mum and ask her for my story,

I listen to my baby tale of how life started for me,

My birth home wasn't very safe, she tells me gently why,

And if it makes me sad at times, she sings a lullaby."

Lovely books for adopted children

"Rainbow Remembering really helped my child to understand more about how his adoption came about. It lightened him after the pain of moving from his foster carers who he had been with for 2 years. He was just crushed to leave them."
