Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman took to Instagram on Tuesday, March 24 to, first of all, wish everyone health and safety during this time and to thank healthcare workers. She then announced plans to release her new book, A Dolly For Christmas, this fall. The children’s book is about their eldest daughter Daisy praying for a sibling and the process of adopting their youngest child, Dolly Grace.
“It’s our family’s story about little Daisy, our Daisy so desperately wanting a sibling,” Schlapman says in a video. “She prayed for five years, every night she prayed for a baby. My husband and I had a struggle trying to have a second child. Then it’s also about our journey to and through adoption.”
“It’s a sweet story of hope and faith and love and never ever giving up on a dream. I just can’t wait to share it with you,” she adds.
Schlapman and her husband Stephen announced the adoption of Dolly Grace in January 2017.
“The New Year brought our family new love,” she wrote in the 2017 post. “We’re so excited to introduce you to Daisy’s little sister, Dolly Grace.”
