Written by an adoptive mother and an adoptee daughter, Before You Were Mine offers a unique Christian perspective on creating a Lifebook that commemorates your child's birth story. Complete with worksheets and advice from adoptive families, you'll find that remembering and celebrating your child's history can be fun, rewarding, and even redemptive. You'll discover how to uncover and organize details of their birth story, make the story both truthful and positive, and use the Lifebook to trace God's faithfulness.
