This book is now one that we read each night before we do our other reading.

It makes each child feel very special and loved to know that God chose us to be their parents and to know that we will always be there for them.

I took one look at this book tears welled up and knew it was a keeper; I bought it on the spot. It says what I think every parent feels about their "little angel sent from Heaven" (as my Mom always called me.)
The story begins by telling the child "long, long ago God made a decision...a very important decision...one that I'm really glad He made. He made the decision to make you."
The story truly expresses what we as parents all want our children to know: they are very special, unique and have our hearts wrapped around their fingers since birth and this will never change.
"...As you grow and change, some things will stay the same. I'll always love you. I'll always hug you. I'll always be on your side. And I want you to know that... just in case you ever wonder."
The ending is perfect; it talks about heaven. At the beginning and end, there are a few blank pages that I took advantage of and wrote some personal comments in my only daughter, Kaitlyn's copy. I know she will cherish this book forever and always know how much her Mom loves her. Isn't that what you want for your children? We are not immortal; leave something behind for your child to treasure. This book is a great way to do it.

My 6 year old checked this book out at school, and she and I read it over and over together. It's a wonderful, warm gift to a child, to hear again and again how special she is, how much she is loved, and regardless of the cirucumstance of her arrival, that she is a gift from God to them... which is why I also gave it to the parents who adopted a baby I chose to give life to.

I cannot say enough about this book. I found it in the store today and had to sit on the floor and read it to my child then and there. It brought tears to my eyes. In todays world, children need to hear how special they are on a consistent basis. They also need to hear about Gods love for them. This book is the best childrens book I have ever read.

I recieved this book at a baby shower for my second child. It was actually given to my 3 year old daughter by my grandmother who did not want her to feel left out of all of the excitement. When I finally sat down and read the book to her, I cried so hard that I had to stop several times. It is a beautiful story of the love only a parent can have for a child. I cherish this gift and so does my daughter.

Max Lucado brings his writing talents to a children's book! In a soothing way, this book will tell your child how special he/she is as he grows up, and how his parents and God will always love him. My favorite line is "I am on your side." How many of us think to tell our children that we are on their side and that our goal is to help them? This book is appropriate for adopted as well as biological children, and single parents whether male or female. If every child had this book read to them daily, the world would be a much better place in which to live. My daughter loves it, and I love reading it to her. In the future, it will be included in every shower/baby gift. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this book.

This book has so touched my heart that I have found myself giving it as a gift for baby showers, graduations, baptisms, and confirmations. It gives words to the unconditional love that is so hard to express to a child...of any age.

This book is such a wonderful book for parents to read to their children - natural born and adopted. My husband and I do foster care for drug affected infants and will be sending one to each one of the babies that we have had in our home and that have moved either into an adoptive home or back to their biological parents. I think that it is so important for children - especially these children to know that they were put on this earth by God for a purpose and that not only will I always love them, but more importantly God will always love them. The best line in this book is about the "hug". Now you have to buy the book to see what I mean. God Bless!

We received this book as a gift to read to our daugter on her 3rd birthday. What a gift! I could barely make it through without tearing up, because it expresses my wife and my sentiments exactly. Our children are adopted and when you read the book in that context, it makes it even more special. I too will never give another shower gift without including this book. It would also make a special gift for the adoptive parents of an older child, or as a high school graduation gift (Seriously!) If you want to convey the unconventional love you have for your children, buy this book. ><<>
