  • (1888PressRelease) September 01, 2012 - Georgetown, MA - Adoption is often a difficult process for adults, but it can be particularly confusing and upsetting for children. As an adoptive parent, Dr. Paul Janson recognizes the confusion that can surround adoption. He has released a new book, The Child in Our Hearts, to help other adopting parents bring children into their hearts while making the transition easier for the adopted children to understand. The book is a valuable resource for adopted children and helps them to learn, grow, and excel in their new homes and the hearts of their loving families.

    Written from the point of view of parents seeking to adopt, but at a reading level that children will comprehend, this beautifully illustrated book explains how a couple finds a "child for their hearts." The storyline approximates the experience of Dr. Janson and his wife, Mary, when they adopted two little girls from Ecuador, Emma and Maria. Dr. Janson read the girls this story when they first arrived so they would know that they were now members of the family. Emma and Maria have grown into young adulthood, healthy, happy and ready to take their place in the world.

    "Children are the most precious and important things in the world," said Dr. Janson. "When we adopted our beautiful daughters, my wife and I realized that caring for and guiding these children made us complete. Through our daughters, we ultimately learned who we are as human beings."

    Dr. Janson has also created two additional versions of the book. The Child in the Mothers' Hearts is for lesbian couples to read to their adopted children. The Child in the Fathers' Hearts is for gay male couples and their adopted children. All three versions are available in Spanish language translations for Spanish speaking parents or for English speaking parents who have adopted Spanish speaking children. Two additional versions are planned for single parents who are adopting as well. The book is currently available for purchase at, and
