Beautiful Gift Nov 22, 2008
I bought this book and CD set as a gift for a friend (the birth mother) and the adoptive mother. The book has some simple, yet inspiring pictures. Mostly the book is just the lyrics to the songs which are included in the back on CD, but it does have a few inspiring words from the man who wrote the music, Michael McLean. Amazing talent. This book is sure to touch the hearts of anyone who has given a child up for adoption, recieved a child of adoption, or in any way been involved in the process. The six songs are written from the point of views of the birth mother (From God's Arms to My Arms to Yours), the adoptive parents (The Gift We Could Not Give Each Other), the birth grandmother (Hardest for Me), the child (Yours), and two songs about hope and faith (Hope Hiding There, Something Perfect). The CD includes the 6 songs sung and also just the music/accompaniment for people who would like to preform them. All in all a good buy and an amazing piece of work from a wonderful man.
Touching Oct 25, 2007
This is a fantastic adoption book. It has very touching thoughts and feelings as well as the lyrics to the songs. The pictures are beautiful scenery pictures or pictures of people. The messages will truly touch the hearts of those you listen and read this book. We are about to adopt our second child and are giving this book to both our children's birth parents.
A beautiful book! Oct 4, 2007
This is a beautiful book and would make a wonderful gift for anyone who has been touched by adoption. The pictures are gorgeous and the text is songs that Mr. McLean has written about adoption. The story of how he first came to write "From God's Arm's," is touching. He includes songs from almost every perspective, the birth mother, the adoptive couple, and the adopted child.
