Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider announced today the release of Two Plus Two Is One by Serenity James. Foster parents, foster children, care, love, and happiness intertwine in this touching read.
In the United States, the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections estimates that there are 424,000 children currently in out of home care. Two plus Two is One follows the biological family of Deidre, Theo, Teddy, and Ellie, as through a crisis they meet the foster parents Serenity and Jared. As two children navigate the circumstances that lead to their adventure, readers will see how an uncommon relationship evolves into an extended loving family.
“This journey that I have attempted to share continues today with Ellie, Teddy, Deidre, and Theo. We recently shared the joy of them purchasing their first home. Now we laugh about what we’ll plant this year and preserve for the winter. This past Christmas season, we made cookies together, and Deidre shared never having had this experience before. We have truly become part of each other’s lives,” the author shares.
Dedicated to those teams of people who held the author’s family up and kept them moving forward, Two Plus Two Is One is a journey of what can happen when both sets of parents choose to open themselves to the needs of the children.

The writer additionally holds a BA in Social Work, has worked with special needs children, and adults in various positions for an additional ten years. Her experience with foster children began in earnest with her marriage to her husband who had been a foster youth for eight years. It was through this relationship that she became critically aware of the plight of those who have lived in out of home placements, and the lasting scars that are a part of their personality from the losses they endure.
