A Place in My Heart, Hardback Book

A Place in My Heart Hardback

Illustrated by Alison Relyea


Who are my birthparents? Is it okay to think about them? Can I care about all of my parents at once?A Place in My Heart tells the simple story of Charlie, a chipmunk adopted by a family of squirrels, who starts to wonder about his birthparents.

At first he is scared that this might upset his family but feels much better when he talks to his mother.

The story reassures children that it is okay to ask questions about their birthparents without upsetting their "forever" (adoptive) parents. This fully illustrated picture book for adopted children aged 2-5 gives you an opportunity to discuss adoption, birthparents, and the fact that our hearts are big enough to hold everyone we care about.
