Overview

Walk alongside Indian sisters, Priya and Ari, as they join a new family through adoption and travel to a far-away land full of new experiences! Told from young Priya's perspective, she shares her joyful moments, challenges, difficult memories and cultural experiences. Priya and Ari discover unconditional love and what it means to be a part of a family, who is so grateful they have found one another in this world. 


Description

Every adoption experience is uniquely different but the yearning to have unconditional family love is universal. Indian sisters, Priya and Ari, experience what it's like to be adopted into a multi-cultural, interracial family. Walk alongside these two charming, dynamic girls as they journey through the adoption transition to a new country full of new experiences! Told from young Priya’s perspective, she shares her fun times, challenges, difficult memories and cultural discoveries. Priya moves through her world with a cautious eye while little sister, Ari, jumps in head first. This makes for comical moments and demonstrates that children can experience the same journey quite differently. A glossary of cultural terms is included so that all can learn and enjoy what Ari and Priya cherish about their Indian roots. This book is meant to be a resource to those hoping to learn about one family's adoption experience and may even help a child process their own adoption story.
