The Chosen Baby is a book that i can identify with. My parents read it to me as a small child back in the 1950's. I loved the story and it made me feel special, because I was chosen, like the children in the story. I was wanted and loved . This story is part of Americana as far as I am concerned and I am purchasing it for a friend who is now in 2008 adopting a child. I know it might not be up to date, but It is an enjoyable story to help the child learn that she or he is chosen and therefore a special part of the family.

When I was adopted I was given this book. Of course, that was in the nineteen forties. This book has little value today describing the adoption process for children. At the time, however, it was excellent. I keep it as a memory.

I remember reading this book as a small child and it helps young children to understand what a blessing they are to their parents.Adoption 30 years ago was different than it is today, and this book touches on what was "acceptable" for the times. I have since met my birth-mother and that experience was fulfilling.

27 years ago, I never knew what this book would mean to me. My parents bought one for my sister and then for me as we were adopted. They read it to us, and we understood as much as any toddler/child could. We knew how the adoption went, and to what ends out parents would go for us. But now I look back on my copy of this book, and smile. We spent a lot of time with it. It is colored in, and written on, and the binding is falling apart. I must have loved this book as much then as I do now. THank you. I'm buying a copy to give to a friend who just adopted a little Korean Boy. I hope he loves it as much as we did.
