When adopted son, Calvin, is assigned a class project to talk about his family, he asks his parents to explain how they chose him. Calvin’s parents reassure him that they weren’t just hoping and praying for any child—they were waiting specially for him!
Calvin is chosen.
He is secure.
He is loved.
But since he was adopted, Calvin wonders if he’s really part of his parents’ family. His mom reminds him that there are lots of ways to make a family and that they all created by God.
And even better than that, once you are a family, you are a family forever!
Every Family is Created by God
God forms families in many different ways and sizes, but all are equally important and special.
We Chose You was written to communicate to all children, whether birthed or adopted, that they are chosen. That they are secure. That they are loved. This is a message every child needs to hear.
Let this book give you the words to tell your child about your family’s unique story.
