Red in the Flower Bed by Andrea Nepa

 A beautifully told, rhyming story of interracial adoption awaits you in Red in the Flower Bed by Andrea Nepa.

The story of adoption is told using nature’s beauty. A poppy lets her seeds go east and west to where they will find their best home. One seed lands in a garden patch and the flowers are thrilled to have her, waiting to see what the tiny seed will turn into. When she finally blooms into a pretty red poppy, she knows she has found her family and she complements them perfectly.

Nepa is the adoptive mother of a young Vietnamese girl named Leah. The book is dedicated to her daughter, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2006. Leah’s cancer is currently in remission.

This lyrical story captures the essence of adoption in a new and unique way. Red in the Flower Bed shares the feelings of both adoptive parents and their children in a symbolic fashion, and its unusual artwork will catch the eye of young and old alike.

This would make a lovely gift for families blessed by adoption. The book can be purchased from the publisher’s website at
