Best adoption book for domestic infant adoptions.Reviewed in the United States on 14 August 2015
We just adopted a baby boy and I am adopted myself. I found a lot of books about adoptions of girls from China, but this was the first one that really fit our domestic infant adoption situation. I read it to my 8 week old son the day he was placed with us along with my 3 year old daughter. It really helped introduce the concept of adoption to my older child who has seen her friends' moms have babies in their tummies. She was there on placement day so it really made her feel part of the process. She could talk about all the steps we took to adopt our child like, get formula, a car seat and driving to pick him up. It's the best adoption book I've found so far.

Love this bookReviewed in the United States on 1 October 2013
I read this to my two year old before nap time and she really likes it. She points at the pictures and says "mommy, daddy & Sasha". She has only been with us for 4 months, but already we are family. As I read I change a few things around to adjust for what our experience was with bringing her and her sister home with us - the part about we borrowed a crib from a friend becomes we decorated your room just for you and your sister in your favorite colors and filled it with lots of toys.

Adoption book "The Day We Met You"Reviewed in the United States on 5 June 2008
We like this book. Our 7 1/2 yr old loves books and loves to read so we cannot make many negative comments about any book. However, I as a parent of two adopted daughters think the book is geared towards much younger children and definitely meant for a child you are just introducing the subject of adoption to, unlike our 7 1/2 year old where we've started the conversation with her younger then age 3. The wording is also for younger children.
