Joe’s Special Story is the story of one young boy’s journey through this experience and is a wonderful way to introduce other children to the diversity of the family unit.
Any child who has been through the adoption process will naturally ask questions about the story behind their adoption. For children who have been adopted through inter-country adoption this is sometimes even more prevalent.
This book has been designed for parents, teachers and social workers to read with children who have been adopted from a different country to the one they live in now.
By reading the story with your child and discussing the experience of a child in a similar situation, you can take the opportunity to discuss any feelings of unhappiness or doubt that the child might have as regards his/her own situation.
