The Story I’ll Tell

The Story I’ll Tell is a gentle and moving origin story, where a mother weaves together fantastical stories and tall tales to tell how her baby came to her. Each story contains a little kernel of truth, piecing together the baby’s journey across a wide ocean and into her new mother’s arms. This gorgeous story of adoption and parental love is heartwarming in the truest sense of the word, and sure to become a classic.
