"Adoptees Like Me" Books

A Special Series from Dr. Chaitra Wirta-Leiker

Adoptees Like Me book series

Where adoptee empowerment meets emotional support. Have you ever wondered what therapy for adoptees looks like? As a psychologist, international and transracial adoptee of color, and adoptive parent who wishes that every single adopted person in the world could visit my therapy office and talk with me about what it’s like to be an adoptee, I decided to invite everyone into my therapy room by creating the “Adoptees Like Me” illustrated book series for early elementary readers! In each story, learn what it's like to be in therapy with a professional who understands how it feels to be adopted, and gain insights and tools that children and caregivers can take into their daily lives. The diverse characters, family situations, and topics in the series give every young adoptee a chance to see themselves represented, find their voice, and feel empowered.

Book a Reading with Dr. Chaitra!

I’d love to visit the young adoptees in your life to read my "Adoptees Like Me" books to them.

Let's help them feel seen, understood, and empowered together!
