Barefoot Books Celebrates Adoption

By  | 

Congrats to Michelle!

Don't forget about this great giveaway…open until the end of the month!

I received my review (and GIVEAWAY) copy of Motherbridge of Love at just the right time. I was needing something to help me tell AJ's story to him.

motherbridge.jpgRebecca Wolpinsky, an independent Barefoot Stallholder sent me the book for review…and one to giveaway to you in honor of National Adoption Month.

The book, Motherbride of Love , is one of the most endearing adoption books I have read, and possibly the most artistically gifted I have ever seen. The book gets its name from the London-based organization dedicated to promoting Chinese life and culture within adoptive families. The text comes from an anonymous adoptive mother and is in the form of a whispering poem so textured and lyrical that it carried my heart from page to page.

It celebrates the bond between a parent and a child, no matter if it is the birth parent of the adoptive mother, each has a special bond that is inspiring to the young girl. It does not matter if your child is from China or Russia or from the US. When reading this book any child will know that they are connected, in some way, to their birth mother. And, isn't that what most children want to know?

Text royalties from the sale of this Barefoot book will be donated to Mother Bridge of Love, a charity that reaches out to Chinese children all over the world in order to develop a connection between China and the West, and between adoptive culture and birth culture.
