I did not tell my husband how I felt about the book, just asked him to read it and give me his impression.
I didn't like the wording, 'You needed...' it made me think, "The poor child must be thinking, I need...and you have what I need".
Thanks, Todd --- we will definitely recommend your book to our other family and friends that have adopted children!
I will not read this to my children. As others have said, this book creates this idea that the child was lacking and the generous adoptive family provided. Read morePublished 1 month ago by M. Zimmerman

Great, simple story about adoption. "You needed, we had..." A simple concept that was easy for my 4 & 6 year olds to understand and enjoy.Published 8 months ago by AMP69
Thank you Todd Parr!!! Someone has finally written a book about adoption for our situation. Not all children get an "adoption plan" from a "loving birth family". Read morePublished 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
