“Extra!” Review and Giveaway!!!

Our stories are unique. We've experienced a different path to parenthood than most. Whether it’s through IVF, IUI, Clomid, or adoption, our journeys are strife with obstacles and long waits. And I think, no, I know, that it changes who we become as parents. These precious gifts, bundles of joy and answered prayers, are special. And as their parents, we want our children to understand just how special they are. That their unique beginning was marked with years of challenges, waiting, prayers, and wishes on stars. They are here because we never gave up and we took every chance we could. They’re special because it took a little extra to get them here. 

A fellow blogger and infertility priestess (yes it's a thing!), Kaeleigh MacDonald, just wrote a book about this topic. It’s a children’s book titled “Extra” and it’s one of my new favorites! One thing I really love about her book is that it explains this all to a child in a way that’s easy for them to understand, without causing any confusion. And it’s also a great catalyst for discussions or for your child to ask questions about their beginning.

As an adoptive mom, I try to find children’s books that touch on adoption or families that don’t fit the usual mold. And Kaeleigh's book does a beautiful job of celebrating all types of families, including adoptive families. And this is why I love it so much. I think it's so important for my daughter to understand that her story is special and unique, and that makes her so very special too. Maybe even, EXTRA special. :)

Kaeleigh was kind enough to send me a copy of her book for a giveaway!!! So before you go to Amazon to make a purchase, put your name into the hat for a free copy.  ;)

Kaeleigh's blog tour started on January 22nd, and she kicked it off on her blog, Unpregnant Chicken. There will be new posts each day, so make sure to follow along here!

Now on to the giveaway!
