Overview

Families come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Some are big. Some are small. And some don't even look like each other. But no matter what your family looks like, one thing is certain: the most important part of being a forever family is feeling loved.

In Child of Many Colors, experienced author Shannon Guyman has compiled an inspiring collection of stories depicting the drama, excitement, and pangs of anxiety that accompany building a family. Drawing on her own experiences as an adoptive mother, Shannon presents the true-to-life realities of transracial adoption. And while we all know that transracial adoption has unique challenges, it also offers special opportunities and a joy you won't find anywhere else.

Whether you're just beginning the adoption journey or you're already a seasoned traveler, this book is the perfect companion to help you find your destination–a home filled with laughter and love. Enjoy the smiles, the tears, and all the hugs and kisses that come with belonging to a forever family–no matter what that family, looks like.
