Momma Gave by Josephine Watson


A true love song of an adopted child, this beautiful story follows the journey of a child chosen by loving arms. A tribute to all mothers who must part with their children and to those who welcome these newborns as their own; this is a must-read. Especially since it is an interracial adoption, and baby Josephine, now a woman, celebrates the gift of the two women who were her mothers and the welcoming of her three brothers. A hymn to adoption and compassion.
