The Story I'll Tell
For many transracial adoptees who have crossed oceans to join their families, that birth story can often be a mystery. Here, author Nancy Tupper Ling adds whimsy and joy to the son’s origins, while artist Jessica Lanan paints Ling’s visions in magical swathes of glowing, multilayered hues. Page by page, this Story resonates throughout with love and laughter that turn tears to smiles. It’s quite the resplendent reminder that families are created in any number of ways … and that children – however they arrive in your arms – are the “best gift we ever received.” Amen to that.
