Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Kangaroo Pouch was designed to address the decision-making process of becoming a surrogate, as well as what to expect during and after the pregnancy.

From the Inside Flap

The Kangaroo Pouch is a touching children's story of how one happy family can help to create another. This tale of a family created through surrogacy is a brilliant, clear understanding of what is sometimes a complex conversation for adults to share with a child.

The Kangaroo Pouch is a simple and special book that all families touched by the surrogacy process will love reading with their children. Sarah has an exciting and genuine approach in telling the story through the eyes of a surrogate's child. Surrogacy is a rewarding experience for all who participate in creating families through this special journey.

This book is a valuable resource for every family and I am thrilled to share The Kangaroo Pouch with all people involved with the surrogacy process.

This is a heartwarming and beautifully presented story for any child, but absolutely heavensent for any family with young children whose lives have been touched by a surrogate pregnancy. The gently told story explains the way surrogacy unfolds in the soothing tale of a young kangaroo whose mother helps a couple realize their dream of having a child. Charmingly illustrated and beautifully written, it's a book that all children will enjoy and which will help them understand that families are made in many ways. For the children of surrogates and the families they work with, it is an invaluable resource to explain in broad strokes the process and open a discussion about what to expect.

My children 4 and 6 really like this book. I purchased it because we're going to be a surrogate for a great couple and I wanted something written for their age about surrogacy.

My only negative is that it's a bit heterosexist . . . we are helping to male kangaroos and the story is about a husband and wife kangaroo . . . perhaps I should write something :)

I gave this gift to a family that is dealing with surrogacy and couldn't find the words to explain it to there other children. It is a great book for the under 6 crowd, but over that, it did not have enough details. It is a definate buy!

I purchased this book for my 3 kids ages 8, 5, and 3 years old to help explain to them about surrogacy because I was going to become a surrogate. We read and re-read this book during the surrogacy and they loved it. I think it really helped them better understand the whole process of what was going on. Highly recommend for families dealing with surrogacy!

This was a wonderful book to help my 4 year old daughter understand surrogacy. She loves her cousin, and didn't have any questions about why he was going to live with her aunt and uncle, even though he came from Mommy's tummy. I recommend this book to anyone with young children who are involved in surrogacy; best for children of a surrogate, but would also be good for children getting a new sibling. Explaining how he came out was another issue!

I love this book. Its very cute and well written. Easy to follow for kids! I like it because, while I think the kangaroo couple is male & female, the book doesn't get too specific. That's great for alternative families. They can adapt the story to fit themselves. Great book all around.

I am going to be a Gestational carrier for my cousin, and have a 3 1/2 year old and a one year old. I bought this book becuase its the only book about Gestational Carriers for young children. Its great, and explains to young children in a way they can understand what I am doing and why. He is very excited about what I am doing, and understands thanks to this book. Great book and very happy with the purchase. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is going to carry a baby for someone else and has young children of their own.

I am becoming a surrogate and I have two girls ages 7 and 2. I wanted a book that would really help my 7 year old understand what is going to happen and why I am going to be a surrogate. This book does a fantastic job of explaining what surrogacy is and in a very gender neutral way. This book is a must for any family that is going to be touched by surrogacy.
