A Closer Look at Craig


“His name was Craig Winston. At least that was the name that he had been given…” And so begins the story of Craig Winston, the beloved green colored bear that is just about to turn six years old. Craig is part of a loving and colorful family. He has a fun and comfortable life and things leading up to his sixth birthday couldn’t be more normal.

When Craig overhears his grandparents discussing the surprising fact that he is adopted, his entire world is shaken. Craig begins questioning his appearance, his parents’ love, and even his place and stability within the family.

Craig is a sensitive child. He is curious about the new information of being an adoptee and also frightened of his parents finding out that he knows. Craig’s choice to search for his birth parents is fueled by this curiosity without thought of circumstance. His need for answers and clarity lead him to befriend Ben and the two adoptees begin their search for Craig’s personal truth.

Craig is a beacon for adopted children everywhere. Children can identify with Craig’s curiosity, his swirl of emotions surrounding this new perspective on life and feel comforted by his journey.
If you know an adoptee or parent of an adopted child who could use Craig’s support and camaraderie in their life, please share his story!
