    Hot off the press! We have a great children’s book for sale authored by Marcy Cook. “Nessy’s New Home” is available for sale in our office and a portion of the sales benefit Monroe County CASA. From the book, “Look inside to discover how Nessy the bird and her brothers enter the foster care system and are placed in a new nest! Rhyming text and beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations make this an ideal book for parents and young children to share. Marcy Cook has been dedicated to inspiring individuals to know and understand their value in the ways of Christ for the past twelve years. She has mentored one-on-one with youth, teens and adults. Recently, when she and her husband attended foster parenting classes to adopt a child, she realized that there are very few children’s books that focused on the transitional stages of foster care. Thus, she is embarking on a new endeavor to help kids all around the world feel valued and cared for as they encounter physical and emotional adjustments during foster care and/or adoption.” Contact us at gro.a1493276226sacyt1493276226nuoce1493276226ornom1493276226@ofni1493276226 or 812-333-2272 for your... read more
