Books for my Toddler and Preschool Daughters

As we are approaching the transfer (AH!!!) one topic on my mind is how to open the dialog on Surrogacy with our two young girls. They know that mama has been having a lot of “check-ups” and doctor appointments but they don’t know what the sudden increase in medical care is for.

Thankfully there is some wonderful material out there written for specific age groups to help explain Surrogacy. There are books for children born through a surrogate, for children of same sex couples born through a surrogate, and for the children of a surrogate carrying for another family. I have ordered the following three titles that I think will best aid our open dialog with our girls.

Sofia’s Broken Crayons: A Story of Surrogacy from a Young Child’s Perspective 
Written from the perspective of a child of a gestational surrogate, excellent for young children (4-6)

The Very Kind Koala: A Surrogacy Story for Children
Written from the perspective of a surro baby, excellent for young children (2-6)

The Kangaroo Pouch: A story about surrogacy for young children
Written from the perspective of a child of a gestational surrogate, excellent for young children (2-6)

After receiving and reading the books I’ve added a brief review note under each title.
