She entertained herself by making up stories and friends to play with. By age 5, Donna had taught herself to read, and that began her imaginative journey to dreamy castles with princes and fairy godmothers.  Donna is a grandmother, random fact-finder, and encourager.

    Children's Book, Love Grows and Grows, by Shannon Forster

    09/09/2019 Duración: 30min

    melissa@blendedfamilypodcast.com www.blendedfamilypodcast.com   My guest Shannon Forster,  who has created a children's book called Love Grows and Grows, is helping so many families.  Her story shows that ALL types of families are special!!!!! The book now has a global audience and is  a "must have" book for all co-parenting and blended families after a divorce.   The book has characters styled as human-hybrid flowers; which themselves are a metaphor for growth and evolution towards love.  The story follows young siblings Flora and Leaf as they transition into a new and unfamiliar life between two homes- one with Mom, and one with Dad and his new wife.  Their journey highlights the challenges associated with creating extended families: a child's apprehension of meeting someone new, and eventually choosing to accept and embrace this person to become a part of their secular world.  With love and patience, we see a mom and a step-mom model a wonderful example of how to put their children first, working together
