A Review

"The author does a great job of conveying that adoption is a life-long process. Throughout the book, he links some of his current tendencies as an adult to some of the memories of his past (both traumatic and comforting memories). He expresses joy regarding his adoption, referring to it as a "new lease" on life. He recognizes, after searching relentlessly to find every piece and bit of pictures, notes, records, files, that things most likely turned out for the best--that his birth mother probably loved him, but was truly not capable of caring for her children."
—Jamie K. Nagy member of the AAC

can I buy the book online?

Yes. The books are available on the Amazon.com website and on the Barnes and Noble website. The book is also available at select book stores. I can't speak for all bookstores but if you place an order through your local Barnes & Noble store, they will ship it directly to your home. Don't hold me to it, but I believe members get it shipped free.

I encourage all readers to submit a review by sending it to my e-mail address or upload it to one of the online bookstores.
