Rebecca Tabasso was adopted at the age of three months to loving parents who were open about her adoption and fully supported her when she had adoption related questions. As an adult, she adopted two infant sons of her own (now eleven and fourteen). In 2010 she designed and launched www.carriedinmyheart.com, a comprehensive online adoption resource dedicated to the well-being of the adopted family, including a vast collection of online resources and a community for peers across each leg of the adoption triad. She actively participates on the statewide Inter-Agency Committee on Adoption along with state family services resources and local adoption agencies and professionals. A member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, she is committed to providing, through engaging children's literature, quality tools that parents can trust and share with their children to reinforce key adoption messages. Tabasso resides in Newark, Delaware with her husband and her two sons.
