Two Birthdays for Beth
What child wouldn’t want two birthdays? Beth surely does! When she hears again her adoption arrival story with excitement and celebration surrounding her coming home, Beth misunderstands. She can’t wait for her extra birthday.
Beth and her doll, Emil, scour the house looking for birthday bash trimmings. Instead of chocolate cake, they find tomatoes and potatoes. Ah, but maybe there are birthday presents, Beth remembers! But her only surprise is empty boxes tumbling everywhere.
Again Beth’s mom explains adoption. And this time Beth really understands. Now it’s Beth’s turn. She gives her mom a touching surprise… and the greatest gift of all.Author: Gay Lynn Cronin
