We have several friends who’ve adopted beautiful girls from China. So I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to share this new book with them. Mary Beth & Steven Curtis Chapman share a sweet story of adoption in their new book You Were Always in My Heart.
This story is told through the eyes of a little ladybug named Dot who finds a mysterious bundle one day. She promises to stay with the little bundle as they wait for her forever family to find her.
For adopted children, the story is a perfect reminder of how much they’re loved. It’s also a good way for parents to explain to kids the concept of adoption. Emma and I enjoyed reading the book together. We talked about her friends who are adopted and how their parents chose them to be part of their families.
If you’re familiar with Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth, you may already know about Show Hope. Show Hope is the foundation the Chapmans started to help families overcome the financial hurdles of adoption. You can learn more about Show Hope here.
