Review: God Found Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergen

Little Fox begs his Mama Fox to tell him the story of how he came to be a part of their family.

This is my all-time favorite book for children about adoption. It fits any adoption (domestic, international, baby, toddler, child, foster, boy/girl...) as the . As an adoptive parent, I feel this book helps hit all the major questions an adoped child may have about their past and future. As a mother, I felt like the author knew exactly what I struggled through while waiting for my little boy. 

The only part that I would have liked to have seen different is the mention of Papa Fox. Mama Fox often says "us," and refers to the parents in plural. But Papa Fox is never mentioned. He's not even in any of the pictures. It's possible that is because Mama Fox is putting Little Fox to bed, so she is telling him the story. But I just wished that Papa Fox at least had a picture in the book.

Other than that, this is perfect for any kind of adoption. It perfectly captures the emotion and love that comes with adoption and (finally!) being a family. This is a very sweet book that holds a treasured place on my shelf.
