Miles wakes up on his adoption day feeling excited, nervous, and even a little sad, but when his supportive new dads pick him up from his foster home they bring warmth and understanding. This is a joyful and heartwarming celebration of LGBTQ families, adoption, kindness, and love.

Miles wakes up on his adoption day with butterflies in his tummy. He's excited, but also nervous and a little scared. His new new dads, Teddy and David, bring tender support, and waiting at home is his new big sister Michelle.

She can't wait to show Miles his room, take him ice skating, and share all the amazing joy that make their family great. Love takes time, but as they get to know each other better, the kindness of his sister and the dedication of his dads help their bond grow.

Authored by Sarah S. Brannen and gorgeously illustrated by Forrest Burdett, this sweet book celebrates gay parents and the power of family.

Published in partnership with media advocacy organization GLAAD, this empowering book positively represents LGBTQ families.
