Scoochie's Adoption Story is a multi-category award-winning book in the Firebird Book Awards competition, earning 1st place in the Adoption category, 1st place in the LGBTQ+ category and 2nd place in the Parenting & Families category.
Scoochie was adopted by her two daddies through an open adoption. In Scoochie's Adoption Story, Scoochie takes you on the journey of her and her daddies’ adoption experience. She tells of the many distinct processes related to adoption such as the "match" process between her birth mom and daddies, the hospital and post-hospital experience, and the adoption hearing that legalised her adoption. Most importantly, she expresses her respect and positivity for her birth mom and birth family, while exuding immense pride and endless love for her two daddies and soon to be adopted sister. While the book's theme is Scoochie's adoption, it honours and celebrates families of all types and structures. The story is an uplifting story about the bond family.
Narrated by the book's main character, Scoochie's Adoption Story is told in child-friendly language with adoption concepts presented in a manner that are easy for children to understand. It is a celebration of family, regardless of family composition or how a family has been created. Through text and illustration, the story represents a wide variety of families and sends a strong message of diversity and inclusion. A perfect reading book for all families and especially for children of LGBT parents, diverse families, and families touched by adoption.
