Dumplings Mean Family, a new children's picture book!
It's been a long time coming on a project that has been delayed and delayed by Covid 19, but we are thrilled to announce that Jennifer's new project, Dumplings Mean Family is ready for pre-order and will ship in time for Mother's Day!
Jennifer's new children's book, Dumplings Mean Family, is told from her son Ethan’s perspective as he shares what it was like to join their family after his adoption.
“When Ethan and his siblings are adopted from China to the United States, everything seems so strange and different. Their new American family doesn't even know how to make Chinese food! The children are worried. Will they ever get to eat their favorite meals again? For Ethan's family, embracing two cultures means learning to fold and pinch their way to dumplings that taste like home.”
Truly a family project, Jennifer’s oldest daughter, Rinnah, also served as illustrator for this heartwarming book celebrating the truth that families can be strong and united when they commit to loving each other for who they truly are. As Ethan says, “We may be different in some ways, but we are one family!”
We are so grateful for the partnership of Madison Adoption Associates and Compassion International on this project!
