One week until the release of our children’s book, We Belong To Each Other! If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet be sure to do so to get your book on Launch Day [HERE]. We did a Q&A when we first announced the book, here, but we wanted to answer a few more of the questions we’ve been getting. Thank you so much for all of your support on our children’s book, we are so excited to see all of you get your copy of the book!
What is the book about?
The book is the story of Grace coming to our farm. Grace was the very first farm animal we brought to the farm, and she was raised not only by us, but the only other animals here on the farm, dogs and some barn cats. We love the story of how Grace came to this foreign place, where no-one looked like her. But through warm welcomes and love, she realizes she is exactly right where she belongs. Being adoptive parents, we love how this story is in a family friendly form to open the discussion and familiarization of adoption or even the feeling of being somewhere new along with notes of what belonging somewhere truly means.
How did you come up with the story?
This is forever going to be our favorite question about this book. Jose actually had a dream and woke up one morning and before coffee, and before good morning, he quickly pulled out his laptop and jotted the rough draft. The best part is this was years ago before we even started the process of adoption. The book has heavy ties to adoption so it’s a complete coincidence that this happened. To bring the story to life, we took a trip down memory lane, re-watching old videos and looking at old photos of when we first brought Grace home. Bringing Grace to the farm changed our lives forever & we hope to make the world a little happier with the story of her coming to White Cottage Farm out in the world.
