    Adults will instantly recognize this as an international adoption story, but the text is not actually specific about that It s still very much the story of the adoptive parents, rather than the child, although the lovely illustrations feature the child even when the words are about the parents What sets this one apart is a very nice treatment of what makes a parent We weren t your first father and mother But we waited for you We rocked you in the middle of the night and sang to you When y Adults will instantly recognize this as an international adoption story, but the text is not actually specific about that It s still very much the story of the adoptive parents, rather than the child, although the lovely illustrations feature the child even when the words are about the parents What sets this one apart is a very nice treatment of what makes a parent We weren t your first father and mother But we waited for you We rocked you in the middle of the night and sang to you When you cried, we came When you laughed for the first time, we clapped our hands We wrapped you up, tucked you in, and settled you down

    Genre Picture BookAudience K 2ndTopic AdoptionTheme Family love and acceptance Curricular Uses Read Aloud, Independent Reading Reading Level Early Readers Literary Elements Repetition of the phrase we wanted you Illustrations Some pictures reinforce the text, while others are not so clear Additional Comments This is a good book to teach children about adoption It is a pretty easy read that children would be able to read on their own after having it read to them once before.

    Parents reflect back on their boy s adoption story They got little things ready while they waited Two little odd things were making a quilt with pink, green, and blue and looking for him in between the clouds and the mountains In the end, they wanted him, and they still do Story is nice, but I don t love the pictures.
