Who are my birth parents? 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 birth parents. 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 birth parents without upsetting their "forever" (adoptive) parents. This fully illustrated picture book for adopted children aged 2-5 gives you an opportunity to discuss adoption, birth parents, and the fact that our hearts are big enough to hold everyone we care about.
