A Is for Always

A is for Always. With your hand in mine,

Adoption’s a gift that will last for all time.

With gentle rhymes and lovely illustration, A Is for Always celebrates the joy and love of adoption from A to Z. With B for birth parents, Q for questions, and U for understanding, each page shows a different adoptive family of cuddly animals welcoming and cherishing a new child.

Linda Katherine Cutting, award-winning author of the memoir, Memory Slips, has also published in The New York Times, The London Guardian, The New Republic, The Boston Globe, Wired, and The Beacon Book of Essays by Contemporary American Women. She lives with her husband and two adopted children in Brookline.

Léonie Little-Lex is a fine artist and illustrator who lives with her husband on Cape Cod, MA. She shows her work on the Cape and in the greater Boston area, and has exhibited nationally in Oregon, New York, and North Carolina. She works in a variety of media with an emphasis on painting and pen and ink drawings. A is for Always is her first children's book.
