Daniel is preparing a special gift for his new baby sister, but will it be ready by the time they go to the adoption center? To show baby Angela how much she is loved by her new family, Daniel wants to whistle for her like the songbirds he loves so much. But will she smile for him? When they arrive at the adoption center and Daniel still hasn't got the knack of whistling, it's Jessie, Angela's birthmother, who knows just what to do.
Whistling for Angela celebrates the familial bonds
formed through the act of adoption. Illustrator Peggy Collins' heartwarming
close-ups of the families' loving interactions create an intimate atmosphere
throughout all the emotions of the day. In her author's note Robin Heald
shares the inspiration for the story, which came directly from her own
experiences with adoption. She also explores the increasingly common practice of
building connections between all three sides of the adoption triangle: the
child, the birth family, and the adoptive family.
