Book Details

Loving children who are not your own

Alone, middle-aged, and a widower, Francis (Frank) Adams had no thoughts of having or raising children. Enter the love of his life with two grown children and he is soon being quizzed on his diapering skills. Holding his first grandchild he experiences for the first time the need to love and to nurture a child. As the bond with his step grandchildren grows, Frank realizes how foolish he had been to believe that he could not love an adopted child as much as his own. Do You Know the Story of Superman? recounts the author’s experiences as he enters the world of grand parenting. Relying on his wife for guidance he finds that it helps to be fleet of foot to catch a speedy toddler, to know where the batteries go, as well as what’s trending with three year olds. Frank finds that it is also a time of self-discovery as he fails at charades and calculates whether he will live to see these children married. Vivid memories from his own childhood are stimulated and relived. Just at the time of the death of a cherished pet news of another new life arrives. By celebrating life and parenting these memoirs advocate for adoption and hope to stimulate thoughts of family for all.
