In Our Chosen Child, adoptive parents can record family history and all the milestones of childhood through high school graduation. Additionally, Our Chosen Child includes the milestones that an adoptive family achieves. A page entitled "Waiting for You" acknowledges the many steps along the journey to becoming an adoptive family, such as completing a home study and getting references. On the page entitled "When We First Saw You" parents can capture the special moment when they first meet their intended child, whether as a newborn or as a five-year-old. The happy memories of the day the adoption is finalized are recorded on the "Adoption Day" page.
Each page features original poetry by Judith Levy, such as this loving dedication: "You had a journey to make, A trip to come through, To parents who were praying, And waiting for you." Judy Pelikan's tender illustrations grace every page, making this book a beautiful keepsake.
All adoptive parents will want to complete this treasury of memories for their own chosen child.

When I first saw this book I was overwhelmed. I run a maternity Home and I am always looking for special gifts for our girls to give their adoptive families. This is a MUST!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
