It is recommended by psychologists to tell your adopted child their story from an early age. These stories serve to complement their identity, with great characters they can identify with.

These books also include themes of unconditional love, care and attention that is so important for young children to develop a sense of security and builds confidence.

#5 The Not In Here Story by Tracey Zeeck

The Not In Here Story by Tracey Zeeck
This book is a good equalizer between kids of adoption and those who aren’t. Because regardless of adoption status, ALL babies come from tummies. It gives parents a way to tell their own children about their adoption. It encourages conversations about adoption for those who may not know how to talk about the subject, offering up a starter concept of adoption to those who may interact with adoptive families, kids. We’ve seen moms buy a copy for every kid in their adopted child’s class, every year, so they can learn how to talk about it without fear and with empathy. We’ve also had many use the book to tell their children about their own adoption story! That’s an absolute honor.
