Ashland author makes a children's picture book about adoption
Adoption was once a secretive affair in our country, with records sealed and adoptees often denied information about their birth families. Not only is that seldom true any longer, but there are even books to help children understand adoption.
Ashland author Robin Herskowitz Heald teamed up with artist Peggy Collins for a picture book about a young boy welcoming a new sister into the family.
Whistling for Angela frames the current reality of most adoptions: that they involve the child and two families, birth and adoptive.
