Description

"Even before you were born,
I was your grandma
and I loved you."

A loving grandmother eagerly awaits the arrival of her grandchild. She dreams of the baby's soft sighs, sweet smells, and tiny toes, and imagines the infant smiling, rolling over, and crawling for the first time. Finally, the baby arrives and Grandma is ready with a very special message.

Tender and touching, Anne Bowen's I Loved You Before You Were Born perfectly conveys the magical anticipation of birth and the Joy a new child brings to a family. Greg Shed's rich, luminescent paintings capture the love and wonder of this blessed event.
