Sometimes rejection can be a good thing. Your genre can be a wrong fit with some publishers.
Your agent may not have chosen the right publisher for your book. Your manuscript may have been rushed before it was ready. This can happen.
There could be a better opportunity with another publisher waiting for you. You just have to know where to look. If you love your story and your characters, stick to your story. Refuse to let it languish in a file or give up.
Rejections don't equal failure but can be opportunities. Never give up on your dreams. Don't give up because of one person's opinion, even if that person is an editor. You can receive helpful clues on how to fix your manuscript that would be accepted by another publisher.
Keep your eye opened for opportunities and learn how to not be afraid to take risks. The right publisher for you is out there; you just haven't met them yet.
For children's publishers, try Disney Publishing worldwide and they also accept adult manuscripts.
