Family is Forever and Yours is Special!!
Never underestimate the influence a book has on a child. One of my young readers chose to do her book report on "A Family for Eve" to help her class better understand adoption.
"A Family for Eve" An Adoption Story is a hand drawn, Hardcover book, written by an Adoptive Mom for ALL Adoptive Families!
Regardless of where you adopted from, if you are a two parent or a single parent family, have one child or several, all adopted or adopted and biological, it doesn't matter! Adoptive families of all types are falling in love with Cleo and Eve!
~Sara from D.C,a Called it the Perfect Bridge book. "Just finished reading a very special book to R for the third straight time- at her request. We both absolutely love the story, the message, and the pictures. It is truly a perfect "bridge" book for kids who are ready to process their adoption on the next level. We love it already, and I suspect it will quickly become a bedtime favorite. And the first thing R said when she opened the cover, "It is blue and yellow like Kazakhstan!"~
This simple yet endearing adoption story that is told through the characterization of farm animals allows children to see their family in this story in a way that can help open or reinforce discussions about adoption, birthparents, and love of family no matter how it was built.
My hope is that through reading the story of Cleo and Eve, readers will be encouraged to have conversations about their own adoption stories. Children who were adopted are naturally curious about their birthparents. Knowing it is safe to ask questions and talk openly with their parents about feelings surrounding adoption is crucial.

About the Author: Kristan Keefe Struck is a wife and became a mother to her third child through adoption. She has her MSW and was a child and adolescent therapist before becoming a stay at home. After adopting her daughter, Kristan began to wonder how she would introduce conversations of her daughter's birthmother and the loss that surrounds adoption in age appropriate ways. She soon found out these questions were common among many adoptive parents. With the collaboration of Mike Flounlacker this story was born through conversations she imagined having with her daughter. She then collaborated with high school classmate, Ken Manning for the illustrations. Kristan is also a planner of the yearly event called Kazaplooza that celebrates families who adopted from Kazakhstan.
