It's Only Ink! While You Were Sleeping
As an unconventional family adoption story, "While You Were Sleeping," by Stephanie Burks, lovingly tells of the day when the sun only shone for a few hours and when two women learn that their soon-to-be adopted son was born. The beautiful text goes on to describe the two women's excitement and joy as they hold him, kiss him, and tell him they love him for the first time.
The colorful illustrations drawn by Kelli Bienvenu, enhance the charming storyline. The text is easy-to-read and is great for beginning readers.
The actual text does NOT pin-point the sexuality of the parents. Those that understand and share the true love parents have for their children, no matter what their personal preferences may be, will cherish this remarkable non-traditional adoption story from the heart.
"While You Were Sleeping" is well written and tugs at the heart with its honorable message of love and the differences that each and every one of us share.
This book is different. It stands out from all the others. It is a book that comes highly recommended by this reviewer.
