Reviews - What do our customers think?
This book is awesome!!!  Jun 26, 2008
I love that the focus is positive and truthful. It doesn't ignore the birth mother's role (as other books I've seen) and is age appropriate. It is probably not great for older children, but great for young children!!! We love it!!
The lovely little story of a little bear  Mar 5, 2008
Charmingly written and beautifully illustrated picturebook by Marianne Richmond, "I Wished For You" is the lovely little story of a little bear named Barley and his mother who sit in a very nice stuffed chair and talk about how they came to be a family. The simple and engaging text follows the them of adoption and will prove to be an especially nice way for parents to explain adoption and answer the kids of questions that young children have. The ultimate message is that it's not where you were born, but how well you are loved that makes you a member of a family. Also very highly recommended for family and community library collections is Marianne Richmond's companion picturebook, "You Are My Wish Come True" (9781934082256, $15.95). Parents and librarians are encouraged to visit the Marianne Richmond Studies website at for a complete list of all her wonderfully engaging, expertly written, and beautifully illustrated titles.
This heartwarming tale celebrates many wonderful aspects of adoption  Feb 5, 2008
As an adoptive parent, I live in frightful anticipation of a question that's far more daunting than "Where do babies come from?" Some day my son is going to ask, "Why didn't my birth parents keep me?" But after reading Marianne Richmond's "I Wished for You: An Adoption Story," that question doesn't seem so scary. The author answers this (and more) in an eloquently simple fashion. Her heartwarming tale celebrates many wonderful aspects of adoption, but Richmond focuses her story on the love between mother and child. You needn't be a member of the adoption community to appreciate and enjoy Richmond's story, but adoptive families especially will cherish this beautifully written and illustrated book. I, for one, look forward to reading "I Wished for You" to my son, and I'm certain that it's a story he'll ask to hear again and again.
