About CMK

Custom Made Kid™ is twofold: a children's book and a non-profit designed to support the growth of families.  Let me explain:  


Custom Made Kid™ is a children's book written to explain how God is intimately and lovingly involved in the “design” of children and families, whether biological or adoptive.  As an adoptive Mom and a writer, I wanted to explain to my daughter, in terms she and other children could understand, the concept of Psalms 139.  

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;   
your works are wonderful,   
I know that full well.

The book (and the Custom Made Kid™ concept in general) isn't about perfect kids, perfect people or perfect families.  It's about a perfect God who knows what is best for each of us.  Also, I couldn't shake the idea that adopted children would be able to clearly understand the idea of being "custom made” by God.   


This dream that started out as a few words scratched on a piece of notebook paper continued to grow and take shape and, before long, God had laid it on my heart to give 20% of the net proceeds from the book directly into a non-profit supporting adoption.  Thus, the Custom Made Kid™ Foundation was born with the goal of supporting families who are in the process of pursuing International or Domestic adoption. If a family has the desire to adopt, we don't want a child to get "left behind" just because they might not have the immediate funds available.

The Custom Made Kid™ Foundation will help strategically raise adoption awareness and support adopting families through sharing about the Custom Made Kid™ story, partnering with families to help with fundraising and by having strategic "Impact Days" in the local community.  


Combine the two dreams - a children's book and a foundation specifically designed to support the growth of families - and there you have it.  A children's book with REAL Super Powers. 

For every book that is purchased, another family's story is written...
