This story is for all children to enjoy and for all parents who have used a surrogate to share with their child. It is to help them understand that families are made in many different ways.

Sophia's Broken Crayons is an excellent surrogacy book for children. The book shares a story of surrogacy from a young child’s perspective in a practical way that children can understand and grasp. A little girl by the name of Sophia is heartbroken after she discovers all of her crayons are broken. Sophia’s friend’s share their crayons with her as she experiences seeing her parents choose to give the gift of surrogacy to their friends.
