Sarah and her husband tried for a child for eight years and finally adopted their son. At the time Sarah felt there were not many books to help children understand adoption in a better way and so during lockdown she decided to self-publish her first children’s book Eddy Finds a Family in December 2020. "My book is a tribute to our son. It means so much to be able to give him this gift as his mummy. My goal was to write a colourful and engaging story so all children would be able to understand adoption. I love the idea that my book will touch the hearts of many children and make a difference to their lives.”
Flossy and Frank Flamingo are unable to have a chick of their own. Eddy Emu is in foster care and in need of a loving home. It’s a powerful and heart-warming story about adoption that follows their journey as they find each other and become a family. It takes a sensitive and emotional subject and makes it fun and engaging for children. Eddy Finds a Family is unique as it explains both the parent and child’s journey through adoption.
