Celia (who appears to be five or six years old) has always known that she was adopted, but she is just beginning to understand the significance of the word. Although her parents deal with her questions with honesty and love, Celia experiences a confused mixture of fear and anger. Was she given up because she was bad? Would her birthmother come and take her away from her adoptive parents? Her parents and teacher stress the love that her birthparents felt for her, as well as how much she is loved and wanted by her adoptive family. In addition to her birthday, Celia and her parents decide to celebrate her adoption day each year. Information a young child can understand about adoption is skillfully integrated into the text. Expressive pencil drawings within colored borders enhance the story. One of the best titles about adoption available for young children. (Kindergarten-Grade 3)

As adoptive parents of two beautiful boys, we are always looking for books to help explain to them what it means to be adopted. One of the greatest fears of young children once they find out they are adopted is that they will lose their parents and family.
Adoption Is for Always is a classic, and it's simple, yet rich language helps explain to young children what adoption means and what it means to have adoptive parents who will forever love and care for them.
