We received this adoption book as a gift last fall. It is so precious that I have given it as a gift as well.
It's called "I Wished for You." You can see it on Amazon here. The author, Marianne Richmond, is local here in Minneapolis and her store is just a couple miles from me. All of her books are GREAT for kids or friends or life celebrations!
The book follows a conversation between Barley Bear and his Mama as they curl up in their favorite cuddle spot and discuss how they became a family. Barley asks Mama the questions many adopted children have, and Mama lovingly answers them all. I love the message presented in this book - love is what truly makes a family!
The beginning starts with Barley saying, "Mama, tell me again how I'm your wish come true."
And she goes on to share how she had wished for him for so long. It talks about the mama that grew Barley in her tummy and how she wished for a family for her baby.
One of my favorite lines is:
"One day...." said Mama, brightening as she spoke, "One glorious, special, wonderful day, I found out my wish was coming true."
Samuel I wished for you and you are always and forever my wish come true.
