What is the title of your book? DJ’s Lullaby- A Mother’s Love Song
What is your book about? DJ’s Lullaby is a heartwarming and beautifully illustrated bedtime story and lullaby-a song of love from mother to child-written to celebrate family through adoption. Because every child is a gift from God. And every child is perfect for every mom who loves them.
Why did you decide to write it? I created this story and lullaby for my son when he came home to us at almost four years ago. I wanted him from a very young age how special he is and how loved, wanted, and prayed for he has been. At the encouragement of friends and family, I have finally published it. With all my children’s stories, I want to make adoption a celebrated choice.
What types of readers will be interested in your book? A mother’s love is universal theme. Anyone who is a mom, a child of a mom, or even knows a mom can relate to it. There is an adoption component to the story. Families who have grown through adoption will find it particularly special. Most importantly it is a children’s book. My goal is sharing this very personal story is to provide parents a tool for conversation about the depth of the love they have for their adopted children.
How can people find your book? My book is available on amazon.com in paperback and Kindle version. It is also available on barnesnoble.com and the iTunes bookstore. All of this information is available on my website: www.marveluzbooks.com. Again, proceeds go to the wonderful organization that does great work for children in foster care. This is a book you can feel good about buying for many reasons.
This is my opinion of the book.
This book is a good reminder for children who are adopted that they are loved long before they are even met. A woman who adopts a child longs to have a child. I know I loved Jimmy long before I met him. My first born adoptive mother loved her long before she got the chance to legally adopt her. (I loved my first born enough to let her go live with her father even though it was one of the hardest things I’ve done.)
