Overview

Many adult adoptees have gone through life wanting to ask questions about their birthparents, but felt the thoughts they have might make their parents uncomfortable. Then, these questions have remained unasked and unanswered. "We See the Moon" opens the adoption dialog at an early age by allowing the questions in your child's heart to be asked and discussed, creating the foundation for conversations to come.

This is a story written from the child's perspective, asking the questions that dwell in their hearts about their birthparents...What do you look like? Where are you now? Do you think of me? It will help children use the moon as a private tool to connect with a family that is always with them in their hearts.

This book has received extensive praise from parents who have read it to their children, commenting on how this has opened up channels of communication for them. While the images present with the text are from China, the sentiments expressed in We See the Moon are universal for all those who were adopted, regardless of country of origin. It also is not a book that will be outgrown. Adoptees at many stages in life have been touched by this book.

    A great book honoring birthparents, among others

    This is a delightfully and uniquely illustrated book which validates the young adoptee¿s feelings about his/her adoption and encourages children to incorporate the images of the Chinese paintings into their own stories. It is a charming idea to imagine the child perhaps singing the song ¿I see the moon, the moon sees me¿¿ and so the child knows that ¿China Mom and Dad¿ are present. With the imagery of the moon, the author creates the charming message that all humans live under its light and the sorrow of separation may be healed. Gisela Gasper Fitzgerald, author of ADOPTION: An Open, Semi-Open or Closed Practice?
