Publishers Description Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang captures the essence of the dynamic relationships among adoptive families. These are families with so much love to share whom are desperate to have and/or help children. From hugs and kisses, to witnessing "firsts" together, "Why I Chose You" depicts all of the reasons why each child is uniquely special to his or her adoptive parent(s). Raising a child is not a right, but a gift. It matters not from where the gift comes, but simply that it is received. Gone are the days in which adoption was taboo. It is reason for rejoicing, sharing, and celebrating. No guilt and no second guesses can creep into your heart once it is so completely filled to bursting with love. It is that love that is celebrated within the pages of "Why I Chose You," Gregory E. Lang has compiled dozens of reasons for adoption as well as capturing the adoration, affection, and mutual gratification that is received from both the parent and child. For there is no greater place than a home filled with love, and no greater gift than the smile of a happy and contented child who knows he or she is loved.

Why I Chose You Review Mar 12, 2007
The book Why I Chose You was a disappointment for me. It's just okay. I expected some short adoption stories. Instead the book just lists simple sentences that express reasons for adopting along with an accompanying photo of an adopted child and his family. The book lacks substance. I don't recommend it.
It Touched My Heart Nov 16, 2006
My husband and I are currently in the process of adopting our first child. When I came across this book in the store it stopped me dead in my tracks. Faster than you could blink an eye I was standing in the middle of the aisle reading each page and crying my eyes out. The photos and words in this book truly touched my heart, and I know that it will fast become a family favorite.
"Why I Chose You" Gregory E. Lang Feb 2, 2006
Powerful, emotional, exceptionally well done. A perfect gift for anyone who has adopted a child and beautiful reading for the extended family. It captures the almost indescribable feelings that unite a parent and child and will, at some point, be a valuable tool in expressing those feelings to the child.
Good but not Inclusive Dec 17, 2005
It would be hard for any author and his editors to represent every type of adoptive family in this book. And those not represented should acknowledge that, but it seems appearant that was a conscious effort made to limit and/or exclude non-white, non-straight families, non tradional families. I was very pleased when I found this book on Adoption and my heart swelled as I read the various passages, but as I skimmed through it I failed to see a single picture of two dads. I thought I might have missed it, so I skimmed again, nope, not there. But what I did find was an email address in the back of the book for the author. I sent him an email addressing my concerns. He responded quickly and reasonably. While I disagree with the marketing of the book, I applaud Greg Lang for his interest and effort and I have since purchased the book. Note to the Editors: Had not the author responded personaly to my concerns, I would not have purchased this book, so keep that in mind for your second printing.
A Must For Parents of Adopted Children Sep 6, 2005
I initially found this book at a local department store when shopping with my mother-in-law, her 2 sons are adopted. As she started skimming through this book in the store she started crying! I knew right away that this would be a perfect gift for her, but the price seemed too high at the store. I checked out this site.com when I got home and found it for $10 less!! If you have adopted children, this is a MUST!!
