We have a couple books on stories of adoption that we read to DD, but they are of international or long-distance adoption...DD's adoption was a local domestic infant and it is very open. She just turned 4 and I would love to get a book or two that would more pertain to the story of her adoption.
Anyone have any suggestions of books that I'm looking for that would be age appropriate?

Just googling, haven't read them. Maybe your library or a local bookstore would have copies so that you could thumb thru before purchasing. Suggested ages 4-8 on both. :)

http://adoption.about.com/od/guidereviews/fr/megansbdaytree.htm Found another with this synopsis below. Ages 5-8
"Kendra, Megan's birth mom, planted a tree in her back yard after Megan was born. Each year Kendra decorates the tree and sends a picture of it to Megan. When Megan receives a letter from Kendra announcing her future wedding and plans to move, Megan worries that her birth mom will forget her. Megan believes that the tree is what holds them together, she quickly learns that their bond goes much deeper. This is a sweet story that shows how an open adoption can help a child with his/her identity."

AAK, I was thinking DD's birth mom was older (guess that must have been yours, Iamgr8teful) so I skipped this one. The "Tell Me Again About the night I was Born" assumes the birth mom is "very young."
