    Touching, Poignant, Eloquent, PEFECT!

    I bought this book to give to our son on our finalization day (within the next month). He's only 12 months old, but we are going to begin talking openly about adoption and how he is adopted as soon as he's able to understand words. This book made me cry the first time I read it. I wished so long for him. So hard for him and once I saw him, I KNEW my wish had come true. The author seemed like she wrote the book from my heart to my son. It was amazing. A PERFECT gift to give your child from his Mama.

    This story is just fantastic.

    This story is just fantastic for those that have or are contemplating an adoption. It helps to explain to the child how you felt before as well as after the event. As you can tell from my ratings, I love this missive. Thank you Marianne Richmond.
