A FOREVER FAMILY by Rob Scheer
(Jeter Publishing; November 6, 2018; $25)

In the tradition of The Promise of a Pencil and Kisses from Katie comes A FOREVER FAMLY, an inspirational memoir by the founder of Comfort Cases www.comfortcases.org about his turbulent childhood in the foster care system and the countless obstacles and discrimination he endured in adopting his four children.



Rob Scheer never thought that he would be living the life he is now. He’s happily married to his partner and love of his life, he’s the father of four beautiful children, and he’s the founder of an organization that makes life better for thousands of children in the foster care system.



Poignant, gripping and inspiring, Rob’s story provides a glimpse into what it’s like to grow up in the foster care system, and sheds necessary light on the children who are often treated without dignity. Both a timely call to action and a courageous and candid account of life in the foster care system, A Forever Family ultimately leaves you with one message: one person can make a difference.

Your Family: A Donor Kid’s Story
By Wendy Kramer
Illustrated by Jen Moore

Author Wendy Kramer writes in her new book: In 2000 my then ten year old donor-conceived son Ryan and I started the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR). It was born out of his curiosity about possible half siblings and about his own biological father, a man only known to us as donor 1058. From the beginning, the DSR's mission has been to connect, educate and support all those in the donor family, first and foremost being the donor-conceived child.

18 years later, with 60,000 members in 105 countries, and with many research studies and published papers, we've come to understand much about everyone in the donor family. With almost 20,000 people connected on the DSR, we’ve heard from thousands of them about the profound and important familial connections that take place every single day. We know that it's important for donor offspring to be told about their origins right from the start - but telling is only the first step.  Donor-conceived children must also feel understood about their own curiosities and eagerness to connect with their first and second-degree genetic relatives, and their desire to know more about their ancestry.

Kramer goes on to say she has been asked many times to recommend a children's book about being donor-conceived, being curious about half siblings and donors, and about making those connections. Thus Your Family: A Donor Kid’s Story was created. “Because there are an infinite number of combinations of family type, parent type, donor type, sibling type and child type, we show many types of kids and families,” says Kramer.
