The Boy with Two Names
The Boy with Two Names is one of those special, rare books that touches the heartstrings of adult readers, but also has potential to be a favorite children's book. It deals with the transition of an adopted baby from his birth mother to his adoptive parents. It beautifully and gently depicts the love on both sides, as well as the difficulty of the decision. A must-read, especially for people in the adoptive process.
About Chelsey B. Simmons (Dallas, Texas Author)
Chelsey Blackketter Simmons was born in a small town in Oklahoma. She has always been a writer at heart, enjoying all aspects of writing. She feels the ability to express yourself in a way that others may relate to is one of her true joys in life. Another joy in her life is her family. She is married to an amazing and supportive husband (who also helped illustrate her first book) and together they have a blended family with 7 beautiful children. They range in ages from 6-16 and keep her days busy but full of love. She spends most of her time in a classroom surrounded by little ones as a Kindergarten teacher at a local school district where she has worked for the past 6 years. When she is not laughing with her Kindergartners, or on adventures with her family she enjoys sneaking away for a fun movie, listening to music or of course reading and writing! Chelsey is very excited to have accomplished one of her lifelong dreams- to publish her first children’s book.
