Family Day: Celebrating Ethan's Adoption Anniversary

As 5-year-old Ethan and his family commemorate the first anniversary of his adoption, they reminisce about the joy and excitement of that special event. As the day progresses they pause to think about Ethan's birth family and to look through his Lifebook. Along the way, Ethan's curiosity leads to discussions which help him conclude that adoption is a wonderful way to build families.

Praise for Family Day

Family Day: Celebrating Ethan's Adoption Anniversary is a heartwarming and important addition to the fairly thin catalogue of literature for and about children and families experiencing foster care adoption. Ethan's joyful, yet curious approach to his special day brilliantly captures the feelings of foster care children wanting to be a part of an adopted family while also grieving the loss of their birth family. Ms. Mitchell's book provides a welcome support for children and adults alike, and should be in the hands of every family created or expanded through foster care adoption.

Family Day will open windows of communication for families who have adopted. The book explains why families might be motivated to adopt, how the process occurs, and the varied feelings associated with adoption. Some adopted children don't have the opportunity to interact with other adoptive families. This book will help to normalize adoption and its resulting permanent family relationships.
