It is illustrated with dramatically "cute bubble-head" babies of various races. The book is very brightly illustrated, orange and green are the primary colors.

Adopted and Loved Forever
by Annetta E. Dellinger
This older version adoption book for children equates the love of an adoptive family with the love of God, explaining the many ways adoption into God's family is reinforced in the Bible. It normalizes adoption by explaining that many children are adopted, and there are also many Biblical stories related to adoption, especially how we are adopted as Christians by God. It is rather wordy compared to more modern children's books. It affirms that families can look different, adopted children are special and that parents must be strict as well as loving. A good choice for church classrooms or church libraries.
