Product Description

Review

Like the pieces of the puzzle in the lives of adoptees seeking their identity, these essays fit together to form as complete an understanding as is ever possible. —Betty Jane Hegerat

(2011-04-09)

With stories flooding in from all angles of adoption, the final 25 range from the classic young woman forced to give up her baby to the child who is always looking for an unknown face in the crowd, to the gay parent, the sibling dynamics and more. —Monday Magazine



Each [story]—like life itself—is full of unexpected twists and surprises. But all of the narrators are honest, compassionate and have something important to say about the ways their lives have been forever changed by adoption. —The Toronto Star

(2012-11-04)

Being an adoptee, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about adoption from all angles. I recently found half siblings and it has been a wonderful experience.
