By Matthew Cordell
When an elephant couple embark on a life together, thoughts of children are far away-at first. But as the desire for a child grows, so do unexpected challenges in the process. After fruitless plans and disappointment there’s hope on the horizon and their deepest “wish” comes true just as it was meant to be.
Both touching and uplifting, WISH provides parents everywhere the means to convey to their children just how much they are wanted, thought of, and cherished– even before they came to be. This is a perfect gift for baby showers, first birthdays, as well as for Father’s Day!
My thoughts: This book truly touches my heart. Although I did not have trouble conceiving any of my four children, they were truly wished for and very, very much wanted. My son, Braxton really loves this book. I read it to him and let him know that his Mommy and Daddy wanted him so much more than we ever knew. (Although he was a surprise baby, we had no idea how much we wanted him until I was pregnant with him.) He is the greatest surprise gift we could have ever received.
I really believe WISH would make the perfect gift for a new Daddy for Father’s Day!
