God Gave Us You {book review}

I can’t get through this book without emotions welling up.

Each time we found out we were pregnant, our initial reaction was gratitude. On our knees, mouths giving praise, we thanked Him. The one who gave, generously.  Our daughter is coming in just over a month and our hearts overflow with gratitude….for God gave her to us.

This sweet little book is a retelling of a daughter’s life and her parents heart emotions as they waited for their darling Little Cub to enter the world. From conception to birth, the book walks the nine months of pregnancy, all the while, reassuring Little Cub of the One who gave her to her parents. God did. This book would be great for expectant parents, older siblings awaiting a new baby, and for the babies themselves as their minds begin to wonder, “How did I get here?” The illustrations are adorable and the story simple yet profound. A great reminder for adults and children alike.

Yes, like Little Cub, sweet daughter, after three years waiting, when you ask “Where did I come from?” we will answer, God gave us you.

Because He did.
