Overview

Before You Were Mine: Discovering Your Adopted Child's Lifestory by Susan TeBos, Carissa Woodwyk

Written by an adoptive mother and an adoptee daughter, Before You Were Mine offers a unique Christian perspective on creating a Lifebook that commemorates your child’s birth story. Complete with worksheets and advice from adoptive families, you’ll find that remembering and celebrating your child’s history can be fun, rewarding, and even redemptive. You’ll discover how to uncover and organize details of their birth story, make the story both truthful and positive, and use the Lifebook to trace God’s faithfulness. This powerful concept takes the guesswork out of how and when you’ll talk about your adopted child’s beginnings—and offers him or her a lasting memento that helps them overcome uncertainty and fear to rest in Christ’s unconditional love. How will you embrace your child’s birth story as part of God’s plan? Before You Were Mine will help you relax and rejoice in the beautiful story God is writing for your child.
