A BLESSING FROM ABOVE
This book is so near and dear to everyone’s heart at Christian Homes & Family Services! In this touching story, a kangaroo prays for a baby to love and hold. One day, as she rests under a tree, a baby bird falls out of its crowded nest—plop!—right into her pouch! What we love so much about this story is that that the momma bird sees her nest is too crowded too. Momma-Roo and Little One thank God for all their blessings … but especially for each other.
A MOTHER FOR CHOCO
A Mother for Choco is a story about a lonely, little bird who goes in search of a mother. He asked all kinds of animals about his mother, searching for a mother who looks like him, but instead the little bird is blessed with a mother and siblings who look nothing like him.
SEARCHING FOR THE YOU WE ADORE
In this incredibly illustrated story, love circles the globe climbing with pandas and swimming with dolphins searching for a child that is already so very loved from afar.
WE BELONG TOGETHER
This sweet story is all about sharing your home and sharing your heart to make a family that belongs together. “We Belong Together” is a good and simple one for a squirmy toddler. (Meaning that it’s not too long and actually holds their interest!)
MOMMY’S HEART WENT POP
Although this book is more geared towards international adoptions, this story does a wonderful job of bringing out the beauty of adoption to the entire family through a simple story of love for a child. Adopted children want to know their story. Siblings want to know what to expect. Parents want to know how to convey the deep love they feel.
GOD FOUND US YOU
This one is very similar to I Wished for You but with foxes instead of bears. What is so great about this book is that it is not specifically geared toward international or an infant adoption or a child adopted through foster care but is just about adoption in general!
I WISHED FOR YOU
The story is a sweet conversation between a mama and her baby, and covers the details of about adoption from waiting, birth moms, looking different to the joy that comes when your child is finally in your arms.
TELL ME AGAIN ABOUT THE NIGHT I WAS BORN
If you haven’t read on of Jamie Lee Curtis’ (an adoptive mama herself) and Laura Cornell’s books yet then you’re missing out!. This book is darling, in asking her parents to tell her again about the night she was born, a young girl shows that it is a cherished tale that she knows by heart.
OVER THE MOON
This book is more geared towards an international adoption but it has some really fun pictures and shares some details about one adoptive family’s beginnings.
THERE’S NO ONE LIKE YOU
The story talks about a birthmother that loved their little cub so much and did what was best… “There’s No One Like You” conveys love, acceptance, and a sense of individuality to children who were adopted. However this book might be better for children who are a tad bit older…. 5 to 10 years old might be best.
WELCOME HOME LITTLE BABY
This book is really simple, but it’s especially a great one if you’re talking with a soon-to-be older sibling about adoption and what it means. Short and sweet!
MOTHERBRIDGE OF LOVE
What I love most about this touching story is that it tributes both the birth and adoptive mothers. It illustrates how the love of two women for one child come together to make the child who she is…the result of both of their love.
