God wrote your days in a book,
and when you arrived
we wrapped you in white
and introduced you to the dawn.

A Very Sweet Book Sep 29, 2003
"Before You Were Born" is one of the sweetest books I have ever read. I enjoy it more everytime I read it to my children or myself. I get so caught up in the description of how this family welcomed their child. Although it differs from my experiance, I can relate to the overall feeling the book. It takes me back to the days when my children were first born. When the newness of life filled the air, and our tiny bundle consumed our hearts with love. I also love how it makes my children feel good about themselves. Its a beautiful reminder that God made them, and has a plan for them.
