Item description for Before You Were Mine: Discovering Your Adopted Child's Lifestory by Susan Tebos, Carissa Woodwyk & Sherrie Eldridge...

Adopted children want and need to know their birth story which their adoptive parents want and need to tell. While there are other lifebooks available, this book differs by adding in a faith component because children also need to understand that their adoption is also a part of God's plan. The questionnaires and background material featured in this book have been tested on many adoptee parents with stellar results. Features well-designed and easy-touse forms.

Reviews - What do customers think about Before You Were Mine: Discovering Your Adopted Child's Lifestory?

A very special find...  Feb 6, 2008
This is a very special "find" for those adopting families for whom spirituality is central. The presented information is both spiritually sound AND psychologically sound. I was both very pleased and very touched to find such a thoughtfully conceived and well-written book. It is accessible to even the busiest parent, but it is not a "cookie cutter" approach to the life book. It goes one step further, and it inspires. Thank you so very much.
AT LAST! A Biblical Perspective for your Child  Nov 1, 2007
As an adopted person, I can find no peace or answers to the haunting questions we adoptees struggle with apart from God and His Word, the Bible. Why am I in the family I'm in? Why did my birth mother give me up? Was my life a mistake? What do I do with all my unanswered questions, like missing history? How do I develop a healthy identity with no history? I have found that God has an answer for every question. What a wonderful contribution to adoption literature this book is! I can't recommend it highly enough!!

A Must Read!  Oct 11, 2007
Before You Were Mine is a "must read" for any adoptive parent! I've put off creating a lifebook for my daughter because I just didn't know how to go about it. After reading this book, I realize that a lifebook is essential for any adopted child, and it is so much more than a "scrapbook of my child's adoption story." It is my child's story before she was mine! It is vital for an adoptive child to know and understand his/her complete life story. Before You Were Mine offers step by step advice on how to work through and incorporate a child's history into a lifebook - even the difficult components. The book includes practical guidelines for putting together a lifebook and addresses both international and domestic adoptions.
