I’ve never had a book more people have asked for than this one!
A couple years ago, before we adopted Little Dude, I typed up the very first conversation between him and Elizabeth. We were out walking, hoping to find a good spot to view the super moon. It went like this:
Eliza: Look at the super moon! It’s so big!
LD: No it’s not! I could hold it in my hand!
Eliza: It’s only small because it’s far away. It’s a super moon because it’s closer than usual.
LD: I don’t see a cape. It’s not a super anything.
LD: Can it be a Batman moon instead?
The response was tremendous. Friends and family wanted to know more about this Little Dude who had entered our lives. We were unable to share details or pictures, so our extended circle came to know him from the conversations I posted every so often.
The conversations covered the period when Little Dude was five and six, crossing the point when he went from a foster child to our adopted son.
I’m still quite protective of him online, but I believe the conversations we’ve had paint a very solid picture of our funny, mysterious, unique little guy.
Here’s the book you all wanted so much:
Welcome to the Dude’s Eye View.
Little Dude arrived in his sixth (and final!) foster home at age 4.
He brought with him a wicked sense of humor and a take on the world his foster parents had never heard before.
From his unique perspective, you’ll learn
• the logic of lint traps
• the necessity of bribing reindeer
• why Girl Scout cookies are suitable for breakfast, and most of all
• the importance of wearing a cape
Along the way, you’ll see a lost little boy (and his mom!) navigate the emotional and complicated world of adoption from foster care.
