ASA COMES HOME is a beautiful, hand-painted book about adoption that helps new adoptive parents begin to talk out loud about a child's birth story, skin color differences, and inclusion, all in the context of a loving family. It is written in interactive "second person," so the reader is talking directly to the baby and allows you to incorporate your own baby's name and where they were adopted into the reading. The acrylic paintings are high contrast, black and white images, designed to captivate a newborn. While the baby explores the images, parents or caretakers can talk to their baby about love, family, and belonging. It was written and illustrated by a white adoptive parent of a Black infant, to aid his family and others in voicing new and complicated adoption concepts that are crucial to address for a child's healthy development.
