About this item


About the Book

A little Bear named Barley asks his adoptive mother questions about his adoption.

Book Synopsis

"Mama," said Barley. "Tell me again how I'm your wish come true."

Thus begins this beautiful story for adoptive families. I Wished for You: An Adoption Story follows a conversation between a little bear named Barley and his Mama as they curl up in their favorite cuddle spot and talk about how God chose them to be a family. Barley asks Mama the kinds of questions many adopted children have, and Mama lovingly answers them all.

With endearing prose and charming watercolor illustrations, I Wished for You is a cozy read that affirms how love is what truly makes a family.

A bit heavy on religious, but sweet

This is a very sweet book to read to a toddler about their adoption story. I haven't been able to read it the whole way through without crying. It's heavy on the religious side, where God brings the child to them, but it's still a great message.

This is a beautiful adoption story with bears for characters...it says it's ok that some families don't look alike and says that God picked that certain child especially for that family. We plan to read this to our son as he grows up.
