"Adoption is God's Love given twice."

This message comes though loud and clear in Kelsey Stewart's debut, The Best for You. This little book, targeted for the younger child who was adopted (ages 4-8) packs a big and positive message; one that answers the common questions: "Did she love me?" "Why did she give me away?" and "Does she think about me?"

Stewart's beautiful illustrations are spot-on, reinforcing the warm and candid message that she shares. Her simple words speak directly to the child from her birthmother's perspective.

The Best for You is a joy to read and look at. The broad scope of the book is perfect for children who are fostered as well as children who were adopted through foster care, domestic adoption, or international adoption.

I will be giving this book as a gift to future adoptive parents after witnessing my daughter's reaction, "It's good, Mom. She loved her baby and made her choice for her baby. You know, that's what my birthmother did."

The idea is to instill the knowledge in an adopted child that having been placed for adoption doesn't mean they weren't wanted or loved— it's the opposite. But I think there are so much better ways to tell the story, and the kid-style illustration was, for me, a major miss. I would rather see a thoughtfully crafted piece of children's literature than this, which seems just thrown together.

One of my all time favorite adoption books out there (and I've read pretty much all of them). The fact that this comes from a very loving two time birthmother makes it even more meaningful. Our four year old truly loves this story!
