All I had to do was look at the cover and I fell in love with this book. (I know you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover,but just look at it)
As soon as it arrived I sat down to read it and my 2 daughters sat down to listen. I asked both of them what they thought. My 12 year old said, "Cool!" She really liked it. My 8 year old was quiet and looked a bit confused. I asked her if she was confused and she said, "kind of". My 12 year old explained to her, "You know, like the 2 dads on Modern Family." (TV show-2 gay guys adopted a baby on the show) She smiled and nodded. She did like it and both of my girls always enjoy anything to do with surrogacy books. (they helped me illustrate mine)
Because surrogacy is such an awesomely huge part of my life, the book really touched me deep down. But I think Carla just has a way of doing that. Both of her books made me feel wonderful while tearing up a little. Just like her other book about surrogacy, this was written in a very touching, loving, fun way.
Taken from her website:
Why I'm So Special, A Book About Surrogacy With Two Daddies, tackles a very difficult, complicated subject in a sweet, whimsical way. It is a lighthearted picture book on surrogacy with two daddies. The book is a story that all parents who used a surrogate may share with their young children to let them know just how special they are. This story is ultimately about hope, perseverance, and lots of love.
