God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren
Take out the baby pictures! Tell the story of your child’s birth and of siblings, cousins, parents and grandparents. Spend some time talking about all the people that love them and were excited to welcome them to the world. As you look at pictures of other’s as infants, point out all the people who welcomed them to the world as well. Be sure to include people beyond your family, friends, neighbors and members of your community of faith. It is a wonderful way to help children know that they were and are loved by many.
