Sometimes I live with Mommy;
Sometimes I stay with Dad.
But we are all a family
Whatever house I’m at.
No two families look exactly alike, but every family is tied together by love. With soft, charming illustrations, each child in My House, My Family introduces their own family situation–from adoptive and foster parents to single parents, from urban apartments to rural farms, and from one-child families to large ones. Regardless of the type of family or the size of the house, and regardless of the child’s abilities or past experiences, every child feels at home when they feel loved and safe.
Sometimes I say, “I love you,”
They say, “I love you too!”
We like to be together
And do what families do.

"My House My Family is a beautifully written book that points out the importance of connectedness, no matter where a child lives nor the adults providing the care. This is a book that I am excited to provide to every adoptive, foster, and kinship family that our organization works with! Thank you Hope, for thoughtfully offering a story that EVERY child can find themselves in." - Jennifer Danford, Founder and Executive Director of The Jade Bridge, a nonprofit that partners with foster and adoptive families
