Overview

Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang captures the essence of the dynamic relationships among adoptive families. These are families with so much love to share whom are desperate to have and/or help children. From hugs and kisses, to witnessing "firsts" together, Why I Chose You depicts all of the reasons why each child is uniquely special to his or her adoptive parent(s).

Raising a child is not a right, but a gift. It matters not from where the gift comes, but simply that it is received. Gone are the days in which adoption was taboo. It is reason for rejoicing, sharing, and celebrating. No guilt and no second guesses can creep into your heart once it is so completely filled to bursting with love.

It is that love that is celebrated within the pages of Why I Chose You. Gregory E. Lang has compiled dozens of reasons for adoption as well as capturing the adoration, affection, and mutual gratification that is received from both the parent and child. For there is no greater place than a home filled with love, and no greater gift than the smile of a happy and contented child who knows he or she is loved.

    It Made Me Cry

    As an adoption attorney and adoptive mother, I was browsing through the bookstore when I came upon this title. After three pages I was a teary eyed mess because it presents a heartfelt review of why I adopted and why I practice adoption law for a living. It is truly an inspired read. I couldn't wait for my teenage children to read it. I am giving it as a gift to all of the adoption professionals I know.
