A charming and loving approach to help all children understand adoption. Andrea Nepa has captured the essence of adoption and family, and has illustrated it beautifully with images and poetry that even a small child can comprehend and enjoy. I highly recommend this book for children to share with their parents. --Steven G. Dubin, Esquire, Adoption Attorney
An adoption journey is beautifully depicted with comforting imagery of a poppy flower that is welcomed in a garden family. Children and adults will enjoy the simple yet meaningful story and homespun illustrations. --Stacy Dori, regional director of foster care & adoption services, Friendship House, Scranton, Pennsylvania
What a charming story of seeds being planted in the perfect place, exactly where they belong. --LeAnn Thieman, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Adopted Soul
