The Day We Met You by Phoebe Koehler

This is my sixth post in a series of posts about adoption themed children's books. If you would like to know more about why I am writing about this topic, go here.
My first post was about A Mother for Choco.
My second post was about Horace.
My third post was about I Wished For You.
My fourth post was about How I was Adopted.
My fifth post was about Todd Parr.

The Day We Met is the story of a couple telling their child about the day they got THE phone call. Every page is another preparation they made. Each thing they did was another expression of love for their baby they hadn't even met yet.

The story ends by saying: "The minute we saw you we knew that we loved you. You felt like the sun shining inside us."

The Day We Met includes an afterword about talking to your child about adoption.

  1. Lisa - I was just reading through your book reviews & I love what you've done. I have a difficult time finding books in the stores and sometimes, ordering on-line freaks me out because I want to ensure I'm sending the kind of message I'm comfy with to my daughter. I find the bulk of adoption books at my local stores deal with inter-racial or closed adoptions and that is not my case.
    You've given me some great books to choose from & a couple to stay away from. Thank you!!!
