Chloe's Special Family
A Story About Adoption
From the Series A Helping Hand
The Richardson’s are having a big family reunion and Chloe can’t wait to meet her new baby cousin. But as everyone is gushing over baby Braeden, Chloe can’t help but feel different.
She doesn’t have the Richardson nose like Braeden and she doesn’t have the Richardson chin either. She doesn’t have them because Chloe was adopted. Chloe doesn’t feel like a Richardson at all, until her parents come over and play her “tell me again” game to remind her how special and loved she is.
This sensitive story aims to help children understand and cope with situations that could potentially be upsetting, such as adoption.
