"I am so thankful and blessed that Caleb’s birth mother chose life for him. The love I have for my son is what inspires me to write," Staehli said.
A simple, poetic lullaby, I Love You to the Moon is a book that any loved one can read to a young child to let them know how much they are loved.
"Born out of a mother’s love for her child, this book will bless both the reader and child," said Halo International ( http://www.halopublishing.com ) Publisher Lisa Umina. "Sharing unbounded love with a child benefits our world forever."
A native of the Akron, Ohio area, author Melissa Staehli grew up being close to her brother and four cousins, children of her mother’s twin. She attended Chapel Hill Christian elementary school where her husband, Jared, also was educated as a child. "Acquainted only" according to the writer, throughout school, the couple reconnected in their early twenties and married in 1993. Jared earns a living as a videographer/
"His birth mother generously decided to let a family adopt him," Staehli explained, "and we had already started the adoption process through Korea, never knowing that a domestic adoption was meant to be."
Staehli had written several poems over the years, including "one about God giving me a baby boy," she said. I Love You to the Moon is basically another personal poem, one inspired by her faith in God and true love for her child, she said.
Staehli is available for book signings, readings and hopes to share her book throughout the community. She hopes to remind people "that we all should be thankful everyday of the year, because we have so many blessings."
The author is working on her second book, Charlie’s Gingerbread House, also to be published by Halo Publishing International.
