Be A Part Of My Book!
Look At The Slide Show Below To See A Sample Of What Children Have Sent In For My Book. You Can Be A Part
Of It Too!
Hi! My name is Logan Roberts and I am 12 years old. My parents divorced when I was 7 years old. It was a hard time for us and it hurt a lot to go through it. It changed my life. Sometimes I am still really sad about it and it still hurts.
My mom has always taught us that we can do anything we set our minds to and that we can make a difference in the world. I decided I know what I want to do to make a difference in this world. I want to help children have a voice in a place where sometimes they don’t get to have a voice. I am writing a book called “We Hurt Too” It is a book that will have pictures drawn from children whose parents have been divorced and how it made them feel. I want it to be a book that parents who are thinking of divorce can look at and see what divorce does to children and maybe think twice before getting divorced. I want it to be in every counselor’s office in America. I want children to feel like they have a right to say how they feel and express it in art or in writing and it will help them get it out.
I think there is too much divorce in this world and a lot of times children aren’t considered and then families are broken and lives are changed forever. I am writing to ask for your help with my project. I am wanting children to draw pictures about how divorce made them feel or write their feelings about it. They don’t have to put their name on it, just their age. Can you please participate by drawing pictures or writing letters on how divorce made you feel and send it to me so I can put it in my book? I would appreciate any help with this at all. I know my book can make a difference and if it stops just one divorce than it was worth it. When you think about what you want to write, then think about what you would tell other people who are thinking of divorce and what you would want to say to them about how much it hurts children. Thank you so much for your help and for helping me make a difference in the world. Each picture needs to be on an 8 X 11 sheet of white paper (using black ink and lots of color really helps us print it easier) or if you are writing about, please use black ink and send it to:
P.O. Box 3701
McKinney TX 75070
If you are a teenager or an adult that has recently dealt with divorce or as a child, we would love your input too! Please write a letter with at least 10 sentences or more, describing what it felt like to go through divorce and how it has changed your life in any way. We want people to know that it has a lifetime affect on children. Please include permission for us to use it in the book. We appreciate you sharing your story with the world and being the change you want to see. We need all letters in as soon as possible.
