Born from the Heart by Berta Serrano Review

This week I had the privilege of reading and reviewing a lovely children's book called "Born from the Heart" by Berta Serrano! Considering that my husband adopted my oldest child, and the fact that we would love to adopt in the future, I love children's books based on adoption!

Charlie and Rose want so desperately to have a baby. They go visit their doctor, and he gives them the special recipe to create a baby. And so begins the long process of Charlie and Rose's baby growing in Rose's heart.

In "Born from the Heart", Berta Serrano paints a beautiful picture to children of what adoption is, and how family is not just the people who are biologically related to you. The book was clear to understand and fascinating for my 7 year old and almost 2 year old. They loved the adorable illustrations to go along with the story! Once I finished the book, I was amazed to find that the illustrator was also Berta's brother! I think it's wonderful when families can get together and create a beautiful masterpiece such as this book!

I think adoption is always a hard subject to speak to children about. Children may not always understand the family dynamics or even why they were adopted in the first place. This book shows the perfect love that a parent has for her child, even if that child did not grow in her womb, but in her heart.

I highly recommend this book to anyone considering adoption, or who has completed an adoption in the past. I rate it as 5 stars.

I received this book for free from Sterling Publishing Company to give my honest unbiased opinion.
