Author / Speaker

Blaque Diamond

“I have long wished for a book that explains a child's journey through the foster care system to adoption, that was simple enough for a child to understand, but specific enough for a foster and adoptive parent to read to and with the child.  Author, Blaque Diamond, has done this brilliantly, in a three-­book progression, that explains the journey from birth, to foster care, to adoption,”­­ 
-Tami Morningstar, a 28­ year child welfare veteran in Baltimore City.  

Decisions made by parents are never easy, but what author Blaque Diamond shows in her book SHE NAMED ME STACEY is that the true measure of any parent is to do what is right for the child. That is exactly what Stacey's mother wanted to do, and she made the decisions necessary so her daughter could have what she needed. What a great way to not just address the challenges and responsibility of being a parent but what it means to love one's child enough to consider letting them go. Well written and easy for you to read and discuss.
