Title: The Adventure of Friendship
Author: Adele M Lim
Release Date: 12 April 2018
When parents separate across international borders, it can often times be confusing for the child. Imagination can either run wild or be gently guided towards emotional sense-making.
Through symbolic story telling, colours, tools and pictures, as dreamed up by children, The Adventure of Friendshipcommunicates to the young child in a way that an ordinary conversation cannot.
This book is one part of the project series Lovingspace developed by catalysts of change to especially support families that travel around the globe to live and work.
“It’s beautiful to read a story that celebrates diversity at its core. Each human unique in his or her own way, provides the canvas for a family to be just as uniquely colourful in a whole new way. This book is a beautiful tool for young
inquiring minds to begin a new way of being and accepting. International families can be the seeds to future generations of caring, open-hearted individuals, knowing that what makes a family isn’t always what it looks like.”
Stephanie Hill, International School Teacher

M.E. is where L.O.V.E. brightly speaks
Release Date: 12 April 2018
Many of our young children grow up in a global environment that feels boundary-less, and makes it hard to pinpoint where exactly “home” is, as compared to a time long gone when it was far more common to find the “house” we live in to be synonymous with being “home”.
Through symbolic story-telling, colours, tools and rhymes, HOME Is Where LOVE Brightly Speaks communicates to the young child in a way that an ordinary conversation cannot.
This book is one part of a project series – Lovingspace – developed by catalysts of change to especially support families that travel around the global to live and work.

Title: Love with Passion and Perspective: Pearls from a cross-border divorce and the Hague Concention
Release Date: 26 March 2018
Adele M. Lim, author , innovator, change catalyst, and mother dives into the deep and troubling realities of cross-border divorce and the harsh legalities of child custody. She tells us the emotional stories of several families, including her own, whose already difficult marital upheaval was further complicated by the regulations of the Hague Abduction Convention (HCCH) of 1980.
Designed to hasten the return of abducted children to their country of habitual residence, the Convention has loopholes when applied to contentious separation cases despite its positive intent. Adele offers an expansive view that aims at meeting the Convention in light of our evolution as a global village, so that individually and collectively we enable a healthier systems balance and heal cross-generational trauma by attending to the family system.
Adele generously shares her personal and professional experiences and knowledge, including both spiritual and practical dimensions for individuals and families to develop their own inner sense of guidance from a deeper place of knowing. This intense but ultimately uplifting book is a must-read not only for those facing cross-border divorce, but for anyone who adopts an international lifestyle, especially where children are concerned.
