This book is written by one of my close friends Amanda Barton. She and her husband adopted 3 African American children through foster care, ages 1 1/2, 3 1/2, and 5 1/2 at the time. 8 months later they had a bio daughter born, and 2 years later bio son. They had over 40 foster children and currently have guardianship of a 15 year old boy that was one of their foster children as a baby. The book hits those feelings of YOU'RE NOT MY REAL MOM that so many of these kids deal with, esp. those adopted transracially or as older kids that have memories of their birth families. I am just trying to get the word out about the book (first in a series of 3 or 4) that hits the hard issues in a loving way. Support would be great (you get a copy of the book for your support) but just getting the word out would be great. Feel free to share the link to any foster/adoptive families you know. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1367769515/as-real-as-it-gets-a-picture-book-for-older-adopte?ref=hero_thanks
