We Wanted You

Illustrated by

"Beginning 'From the moment you were born — and even before that moment — we knew we wanted you,' a poetic text and Catalanotto's glowing illustrations distinguish this book on adoption. As the parents explain how they waited and searched and hoped for Enrique, the illustrations show the boy during several milestones of his life, beginning with his high school graduation on the title page and moving back through his life with his adoptive parents: catching the school bus, getting measles, fishing with his father." — School Library Journal
