A forever Family for antonio
- A Gospel Adoption Journey
A beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated book about adoption through the lens of the Gospel. This simple tool is uniquely written to help a parent navigate the complex nature of adoption, specifically adoption from the foster care system.
Written for pre-school age children means trying to be clear yet not complex in how it addresses the topic. That said, the goal of the book is to introduce the truth behind why adoption is necessary; because sin can hurt families. But just as it smoothly introduces sin, this book also introduces God's power over sin, His sovereignty and the Good News. All of this is done with fun illustrations and a story that any parent can have fun reading to their child.
A Forever Home For Antonio shares many aspects of adoption, such as:
- God's sovereignty
- The journey of adoption
- The feeling of loneliness
- Domestic adoption
- Transracial adoption
- The solution of the Gospel

I can't recommend this book enough! As an adoptive parent, this book has been such a great tool that has helped our daughter process her past and find comfort in understanding God's plan for her life. If you have an adoptive child or you have a desire for your children to better understand the gospel through the beautiful picture of adoption, you should buy this book! - Stacie D. (Amazon Review)
I am an adoptive mother of two children. We started this book and it seemed sweet. When I got to the page on the book where he is all alone, on a field, I couldn’t stop crying. It reminded me of how lonely my foster kids had been in the system. My son couldn’t even speak afterwards as it struck a chord and affected him deeply. We have since had some sweet and bonding conversations about it. I would recommend this to anyone who can relate to hurting children. It was a breath of fresh air for our family! - Shannon M.

This is by far the best children's adoption book that I have found! It is gospel centered and clear in its message. Our son loves this book and goes to it time and time again. It is a great tool to have in our family to talk more about adoption and our child's particular circumstance. We are so thankful for Chris Chavez for writing this book. - Seth T. (Amazon Review)
