Together Forever No Matter What: Can a Family Really Be Forever? (Hardcover)
Enter into the honest conversation of an adopted child with his mother.
He lost his first family and worries that he could lose this one too.
Is there something he could do or say, someplace he could run, some big feeling that he could feel that would cause him to lose this family, too?
See how his mother patiently puts his fear at ease and assures him that this family will be together forever... no matter what

"As both an adoptee myself and the mother of adopted kids, I can highly recommend Together Forever No Matter What as an engaging and gentle means to open the door to tough but necessary conversations, with sweet sensitivity for the tender heart of an adopted child."
Christy Award Winning and ECPA best-selling author, adoptive parent
"This book not only addresses the fear children have of abandonment, but also models gracious parenting. It truly mirrors the love that God our Father has for each one of us and the fact that we all need to be reminded daily that we're loved, valued, and wanted. I believe many adoptive families will find great comfort and healing in reading this book with their children. It also has great potential to open up discussions with children who may have been afraid to say anything."

"Together Forever are words every adoptive child needs to not only hear, but to feel. In this book, Charity Clayton has done a fantastic job portraying how the sweetest of moments between an adoptive mother and son can play out in order to bring not only healing to the child, but also to the mama. So often mothers need to be led to safety, as well, on the journey of raising children from hard places. It is in the very words of this book that safety is born between a parent and child."
