Virtual Pajama Party Reading with the Author: Casey Conquers Bedtime by Dr. Chaitra Wirta-Leiker

June 5 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm



Join Dr. Chaitra Wirta-Leiker for a free, live, virtual, pajama-party reading of the second book in her “Adoptees Like Me” series, “Casey Conquers Bedtime!”

Book Description: Casey doesn’t like bedtime. His parents introduce him to Dr. Chaitra, a transracial adoptee just like Casey, who explains how going to sleep and even waking up can bring up scary feelings for adopted kids. She helps Casey think about bedtime differently and combines a special story with his love of musical instruments to teach his brain and body that sleep is safe. Will Casey finally be able to conquer bedtime?

Bio: Dr. Chaitra is an international and transracial adoptee from India. She traveled to the United States as a tiny baby, escorted in a basket with three other babies, and she’s pretty sure that’s why she likes her space when she sleeps now. When she’s not sleeping, she loves cooking, gardening, reading, hiking, kayaking, organizing office supplies, and eating French fries. She also loves spending time with other adoptees of all ages, including her own child, because she knows about all of the remarkable things that can happen when adoptees connect with each other. Dr. Chaitra wishes that every single adopted person in the world could visit her therapy office and talk with her about what it’s like to be an adoptee, but because that’s not possible, she decided to invite everyone into her therapy room by creating the “Adoptees Like Me” series.

This webinar will be available live and recorded; the recording will automatically be emailed to all registrants after live air and viewable for 7 days. REGISTRATION CLOSED.
