The Bear Who Waited

The Bear Who Waited is a tale for children who wait to be adopted. It is in the hands of the publisher. Look for it in mid August, or September. This tail is told through the character of a stuffed bear who was purchased by a woman, but - for what? As he waits for the "big event", he begins to lose hope that he will ever be loved. He questions his existence and self worth. Finally the day arrives and he is whisked to the airport where he realizes his destiny - he is a gift for a child who has also waited months to be adopted. This heart-warming tail blends the anxieties of both child and parent through the process of adopting.
