A child who has entered a family through adoption often faces questions about who they are and why they had to endure such troubling or tragic circumstances. 

This project is going to bring two books to life. Where Your Beginning Began and Loved As You Are show God's heart for adoption and His love for all of His children. These books will help adoptive families begin these vital conversations about identity and purpose in life-giving ways.

My wife, Courtney Cohen, wrote Where Your Beginning Began as we walked our own journey of privately adopting a precious baby girl. When a child joins a family by way of private adoption, they often wrestle with questions of identity. One day, an adopted child will start to wonder where they came from. Where Your Beginning Began helps adoptive families discover together a child’s initial foundations to help answer a critical question of identity.

Loved As You Are emerged from my heart as our family began our next adoption through foster care. Adoption through foster care is one wonderful path a family can walk to come together. Even the storms and steep mountains of life your child has faced are part of the larger, colorful portrait God is painting of their life. Though God may not have brought the challenges their way, He can always make use of them for your child’s good.

Having worked with exquisite illustrators, beauty and vibrancy leap off of every page. We pray that your family, and every family blessed by your contribution, will encounter God's love and intentionality in a fresh and personal way. Thank you for partnering with us to share these journeys of adoption with every family that needs them!
