It’s Adoption Day for six-year-old Madi, the fun-filled day when she and her Mom and Dad celebrate how they all became a family. Every year, Madi picks out a pretty party dress, and together they have a “Madi Gras” celebration, filled with delicious treats, wonderful memories, and praise for the Lord who brought them all together. This I Know For Sure… is a whimsically illustrated, biblically-based children’s book by Karen Capson that was created to help share and explore the blessings of adoption with boundless joy, heart, and prayer. Written to provide parents with a means to interact with their child about the topic of adoption, This I Know For Sure… will help instill a strong sense of belonging and Godly identity in boys and girls ages three- to ten-years-old, while also helping their siblings have a better understanding of what it means to be adopted. With light-hearted, fun illustrations, Madi prepares for her “Madi Gras” celebration, from helping her father prepare her favorite breakfast treat, to looking at pictures of herself as a newborn baby with Mom. She rediscovers the excitement of her parents when she came into their lives, and how the whole family embraced their newest family member. She asks questions about her birth, her adoption, and ponders about how she was created the same as her parents, and how she is uniquely different. To highlight the miracle of adoption for both parents and child, this delightful and inspiring book features faith-led lessons, popular Bible verses, "conversation starters" from a child's vantage point, and tips for celebrating adoption within the reader’s own family. Madi’s adoption story is perfectly paired with joyful and heart-warming illustrations, sure to become a favorite book to be returned to time and again, as the parent and child continue to deepen their discussion about adoption and faith. It also includes additional materials on “Ways to Celebrate Adoption & Family,” as well as “Fill Up My Love Cup” journaling pages to create a lasting keepsake that the child will treasure for years to come. This I Know For Sure… can also serve as a valuable teaching tool for guidance counselors and Christian educators. Playful and upbeat, touching and informational, This I Know For Sure…is an inroad for open communication as children begin asking questions about their identity. It also focuses on creating a bridge between a parent and child in order to talk about their own family traditions by reading the unique adoption story of another child. A perfect balance of childlike playfulness and God-filled discussions, this tender, happy exploration of adoption is sure to create a deeper understanding of the topic, all with abundant laughter and love.
