I just read this book (Born from the Heart) for the first time. As an AP, I wonder how I never heard about it before I saw it at the bookstore. Anyhow, if you think about the book literally it could be a little creepy, but what I do love about it is that it captures the loves the grows in a mother's heart as they wait to meet their child... and I think this book applies to ALL my children. I so desperately wanted to meet them all. It is awesome that I finally found a book that doesn't have to be about waiting for a bio baby or a child that joins a family through adoption..... but about both.
Any other APs (and parents of bio and adopted children)out there that have read this book and want to chime in?
Born from the Heart

October brought more seasonal fun. We took a trip to the apple orchard, the boys won their last soccer game and we delighted to bring home their trophies for their undefeated season, and we carved pumpkins and roasted seeds. Bunte and I took a trip to Maryland to celebrate his forever family day in October. We met his friends Lucas and had dinner at Medieval Times. Boots also dressed up in his Halloween costume for his riding lesson and we later enjoyed trick or treating with our friends. My favorite costume of the night was Wes' Forest Gump costume (the running version of Gump).
