My eyes have been opened to the need of a Life Book for my daughter, in part because of this book. This is a project that I am now excited to work on! "Before You Were Mine" has been a tremendous resource in planning for it. It offers so much information ... all of the reasons WHY a Life Book is important ... a Biblical perspective of their life as an adoptee and scripture references to help you show your child that they ARE important and they are NOT a mistake ... many outside-the-box ideas for finding out information about your child's past when there isn't much to go on ... and so much more.
If you are an adoptive parent, PLEASE read this book! It is the only one you will need to get your child's Life Book created. The book is a wealth of information and will truly help you on your quest to write a Life Book for your child! Blessings to you on this journey!
