This is probably the best adoption book we own. Most books focus on how a married mother and father adopt an infant. I adopted a 4-year-old as a single mom, and most stories just don't apply to our family. This applies to all families. Best of all, it shows that both the adoptive mother and the birth mother love the child and are happy with the adoption and, best of all, so is the child. It sends a great message of love. We've given a copy to almost all of our friends who have formed their families through adoption.

My grandparents have this book. I would say it's probably good for kids ages 3-5, but if you're older it can get kid of boring. I can read it in less than a minute and I'm eleven.

Of all the adoption books that I have bought and read to my children, this is by far my favorite! It is a beautiful book with the exact meaning behind how I felt when I wanted my very own baby!
