Summary: Two Dads Under the Christmas Tree is not just a children's book. It's a book for all about Adoption. In this first story of the series, Jayden will try to tell everyone what Adoption is and how beautiful the change in a child’s life can be, thanks to this form of authentic Love. Inside, you will find fun, touching moments, and a deep sense of humanity that makes the book a tool for parents and teachers to encourage children to value diversity. Often, children only see families that look like theirs. As a window into the life of a non-traditional family, Jayden’s story can be a first step to instill in children a sense of inclusivity and respect for others. In the summer of 2018, during a business trip to Venice, Italy, Tobias Mile was looking for a new idea for his next book. Destiny - as he told us - introduced him to this uncommon Italian family. Upon learning their incredible story, he was inspired to create something special featuring their adorable adopted son, Jayden. After this trip, Tobias approached our publishing company with the idea of a series of funny stories about adoption, human rights, solidarity, and respect for diversity, told by this smart child in unusual language. We immediately knew this was a story that needed to be shared to raise awareness about adoption and reach countries where same-sex couples who wish to adopt are discouraged or even denied.This is a perfect Christmas gift for all open-minded people who want to share with others and teach their children that Love has no sex, color, nor limits.
