{Celebrate China} Favorite Adoption Books

I love growing our adoption book library.  It’s so fun to learn about other families’ favorite books, so I thought I’d share our adoption-themed favorites.  Some are more favorite than others, but we’ve read them all.  A handful are China-related, but could still be great for children not adopted from China.  Some simply have fantastic adoption themes and are applicable to a wide audience.  I think it’s a great idea to have a variety of adoption-themed stories available so children can understand that families are knitted together in different ways.  It shows that we may be different, but we are all bonded together through love.

We do keep these books on a shelf in our homeschool room that’s easily accessible to the children who understand proper book care.  For Dumpling, I try to read books out of this collection often to him so he’s familiar with them, but he doesn’t have free reign.  Click on the bolded title to find out more about the book and/or to purchase it.  And if you have a favorite adoption book that not in our collection, please share in the comments!

    Paige Willingham - Hi Nicole,
    I’ve been reading all through your blog these past few weeks. We are currently waiting on state seals and authentications before we are DTC. Thank you for your beautiful writing. The honesty and transparency are encouraging, and you have such a wealth of information for others. I’m about to go purchase a few of these books to be reading with our kids before we bring little brother home. One that was given to me recently was Born From the Heart by Berta Serrano. It’s beautiful.ReplyCancel

    Paige Willingham - I hear you on that one.. there are some oddities about it. I do like the concept of the growing love for your child, and the uniting of parents and child at the end. Simi has been absolutely wonderful, and so far everything has gone smoothly. We are prayerful for a quick referral and I would love to be able to go get him by the new year. Excited for you and your family as well! Thanks for responding,

    Marta - what is your favorite adult book that you read through this process that you would recommend for someone who is just beginning. I am at the moment slowly going through “parenting your internationally adopted child” this book is a bit heavy with information so I have to read a bit at a time. 🙂 Maybe something more of a story type of a book?ReplyCancel
