From Down syndrome advocate and viral sensation Sofia Sanchez comes this beautiful and inclusive picture book about all the different ways to make a family.

Families come in many different shapes and forms -- but they all teach you how to be strong and show you how loved you are.

Alongside a sweet and simple narrative, the warm illustrations tell their own story. Beginning with Sofia Sanchez’s adopted family, readers will meet families with two moms and two dads, families with single parents, and kids raised by grandparents, guardians, or older siblings. Big families, small families, extended families, blended families, and mixed race families -- including parents with their own differences that make them unique, too.

This heartwarming companion book to 2021’s You Are Enough highlights the important message that families aren’t just the people you live with. They include the people in your school, your community, and the people you choose who love you and empower you just the way you are.
