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!

"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."

Stewart's book is a gift to the heart, mind and spirit. Her candid style and colorful drawings beautifully illustrate the love behind her decision to place. Although everyone experiences adoption differently, I can't imagine a birth parent, adoptee, or adoptive parent who wouldn't enjoy this lively and lovely reassurance of the permanence of a mother's love. Thanks, Kelsey, for expanding my adoption library with your beautiful book.
