From God's Arms to My Arms to Yours by Michael McLean. Published by Shadow Mountain.

This is a beautiful book about adoption. It is very simple and straightforward but it has quite an impact. It comes with a cd of beautiful songs written by Michael McLean. After a short introduction at the beginning, the book proceeds to back up the music by providing short simple messages, pictures and the lyrics to the songs. The music is simply touching. My favorite is the actual song, "From God's Arms to My Arms to Yours". I cried when I heard it because it has such a wonderful spirit to it and you can feel the mother's love for her baby as she sings. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to give your baby to someone else and trust that you have made the right decision. This is a book for all those involved in the adoption process, but I think it would be especially comforting for one who is going through the experience.

    I too enjoyed From Gods Arms to My Arms to Yours from Michael McLean, enough to include it on the Tapestry Books Adoption Website.

    We also have a wonderful short video clip From God's Arms to My Arms to Yours at TapestryBooks.
