Description
Celebrate the heart connection between adopted children and the forever families who welcome them with kindness, care and unconditional love. Carol Olivia Clementine lives with Mama Rose. Mama Rose is everything-tender and sweet. She is also as stern and demanding as any good parent should be. In the midst of their happy home, Carol misses her mother and father. She longs to be with them. But until that time comes around, she learns to surrender to the love that is present. Mama Rose becomes her "home." And Carol Olivia Clementine concludes that she loves Miss Rose, "just like a mama." This sweet read-aloud is, on the surface, all about the everyday home life a caregiver creates for a young child: she teachers Clementine how to ride a bike, clean her room, tell time. A deeper look reveals the patience, intention, and care little ones receives in the arms of a mother whose blood is not her blood, but whose bond is so deep-and so unconditional-that it creates the most perfect condition for a child to feel safe, successful, and deeply loved.
