About the author
Clara Donis-Girma was born in Guatemala City. She was adopted as a child and is a cancer survivor. Clara graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with a business degree. She started her own translation business in 2017. Her passion has always been working with children, nature, and pets.
After cancer treatment, Clara was left with a lot of physical and mental pain. She was constantly feeling down with no purpose. In 2021, Clara and her husband, Daniel, adopted Mr. Milo from a shelter in Central Florida. Mr. Milo, with his playful, funny, intelligent, sweet, and sour nature, helped Clara cheer up.
Clara introduced Mr. Milo to her family, and her young nieces and nephews loved Mr. Milo. Her niece Adelyn at only six years of age, was very interested in the process of shelter pet adoption and caring for Mr. Milo. She asked Clara questions every time she played with Mr. Milo. Her niece Alaina and her family adopted a sweet kitty cat named Jack from a shelter after meeting Mr. Milo. This inspired Clara and Mr. Milo’s Adventures series—a heartwarming story that hopes to inspire shelter pet adoption and educate children about basic pet care needs.
In 2023, Clara released her book “My First Feelings.” She hopes that this easy-to-read book helps little ones understand their primary feelings and encourage them to develop trust in their loved ones to discuss their feelings. Clara has worked with children, and as an adopted child, she knows emotions are hard to understand.
Clara’s favorite place is the beach. She also enjoys spending time with her family. Clara loves playing hide-and-seek with Mr. Milo. She feels privileged to share their home with Mr. Milo and can’t imagine her world without him. You can find Clara, Mr. Milo, and her husband Daniel enjoying a walk at the park or relaxing by the beach.
My son LOVES the series! He enjoys learnings about pets and wants a kitty cat for his birthday. We are currently learning about responsibility and this series nailed down the message. I highly recommend it!
What a cute children's storybook about adopting pets. Clara and her mom visit the local pet shelter to find a cute pet for her. She decides on a little orange kitten. The story is very sweet with adorable illustrations and it teaches children about the process of adopting a pet. Very nice children's book.
This is a cute book that teaches children about the journey to becoming a pet owner. It is colorful and good for an inquisitive child. This is a wonderful story to share with children who want a pet so they have a realistic view of the process. I would recommend!
