The Best for You by Kelsey Stewart


My rating: 5 of 5 stars


What an incredible book!



This book is the perfect book for an adopted child in an open adoption. I can't say if it'd be appropriate if it was a closed adoption, but for anyone in an open adoption, it's perfect.



The title says it all, "The best for you." It explains that birth mothers don't ever forget about their babies, and they place their child for adoption because they want nothing but the best for them.



The sacrafice made by a birth mom is extraordinary and one that cannot be imagined. Birth mothers carry their babies for nine months and then labor with them. They experience the pain of birthing their child, only to place them into the arms of another, because they want the best for their child.



You have to get this book if your child is adopted, you're adopted, or you're a birth mother that's placed a baby for adoption. It's remarkable, touching, and honest. It's the perfect way to explain why someone would choose adoption for their baby, and it's a great way to open the lines of communication with an adopted child.



I will be using this book with Gus when it's time to start discussing his life story and how he came to my arms.



Kelsey Stewart is an amazing woman, mother, and writer. I feel so fortunate to have found her book and love sharing it with others!!

Hey Cat; this sounds like a great book. I've got a handful of adoption kids' books I've reviewed over at http://www.adoptionlcsw.com/p/kids-books.html Hadn't heard of this one yet, though!
