Friday Favorites - Favorite Children's Book

One of my new favorite children's books is an adoption book:

God Found Us You
by 
Lisa Tawn Bergren


"Little Fox cuddled up to Mama Fox one night and said sleepily, 'Mama, tell me again about the day I came home.'"

And so the Mama Fox tells her baby how she waited and waited until God brought them together.

"Oh how I longed for the day that you would arrive, when God would find us you."

This sweet book is such a wonderful story to help explain adoption to young children, especially toddlers.  I have already read it to my two sons.  My six-year-old loves and it helped him understand how this "new sister" would be coming to our family. 

 Of course I cannot wait to read it to HER one day.  It also explains interracial ideas, why might "the other mother" could not keep him, and other similar adoption topics.  I feel in love because the focus of the book is not on the birth mother, the child, or the adoptive mother.  The focus in on God.

The companion book is

God Gave Us You
by

I plan on getting this book as well!

Happy Friday and have a good weekend!
