Jennifer has been a teacher for 15 years in a traditional classroom, but has worked with kids since she was in high school. She never thought she would write books, but adopting a child has inspired words in new ways for her.
As an adoptive mom, finding children's books that help kids understand it has been a little hard. Helping a child deal with the beauty and the loss of adoption is important to me. The story isn't always neat and pretty, but helping a child understand and a parent explain is important to me.
Adopting a child for many is a dream come true, but sometimes it can be a hard story when a child is old enough to understand they were brought into the world by someone else. "Tummy Mommy Heart Mommy" captures in simple language and illustrations the amazing love it takes for both someone to give up their child and someone to want to be able to give that same child a good and happy life.
