Author Carolyn Wilhelmabout this book: Last year on Mother's Day, my now adult daughter wrote a story for me. She named it A Mom. I copied the story and sent it to the illustrator of some of my children's books. He thought about it a few months, and said he could illustrate it. Then, the three of us worked on it a few more months. We added the subtitle so the full title became A Mom: What is an Adoptive Mom? We were able to publish it fairly recently.

The point of the book is a mother is a mother even if she doesn't look like you. Families may be comprised of people from different countries. In this case, a family from Minnesota, USA adopted a child from South Korea.

The words and illustrations reveal the daughter's memories of the mother from the viewpoint of a child about five years old. It shows how patience and love help form a forever family.

The same child is also the subject of the book Alex Asks About Auntie's Airplane Day: An Adoption Day Story.
