A heartwarming book that teaches youngsters about how each one of us is wanted, no matter what circumstances brought them into this world. It tells the story of a couple who adopt not just one, but two children and the steps the parents took to make it happen. It emphasizes the time and patience involved in adoption. Youngsters and older folk would find this book uplifting and it would enhance a unit on families and how different we are and have always been.

Shelves: adoption
As an adoptee, this book shaped how I see myself and my family. My parents read it to me when I was a baby, and I knew every word by heart by the time I was three. I'm working on a memoir about being adopted now and have just revisited this wonderful story. A must-read for anyone involved in the adoption process.

The book was a very sweet story of a couple who wanted to adopt a boy (and later a girl). This book would be wonderful for young children (Kindergarten) who are just starting to understand what adoption means.

This book was read to me growing up, I was adopted and it made everything clear to me that no matter what I didnt understand, I understood that my parents loved me.

Shelves: children-s, adoption
This book about adoption never mentions that children are born. No first/birth parents. An unconscionable narrative.
