From the Author
A Blessing From Above is a tender book about adoption.
As the mother of two adopted sons, I began searching early-on for a book to read to them about adoption. We wanted to be very open with them about the fact that they are adopted. In my search, I found the books on adoption were either too long or too personalized. So I decided to write a springboard book that says just enough in hopes that you can tailor it to your individual adoption story. The entire time I was writing the book I had in mind a friend of mine, Liz Edge, to illustrate the book. Not only is she a talented artist, but she herself is adopted. When I presented the manuscript to her, she cried and accepted the job with all of her heart and soul. I think it shows in her illustrations. I also wanted to make one key point: every adoption is a divine transaction. Every adoption is a blessing from above - for the parents, for the child, for the birthmother. As the author, I hope you find this book useful. As a mother, I hope you find this book endearing. Thank you for your interest in A Blessing From Above.
