5.0 out of 5 stars Search for Paul David 24 Dec 2002

While maternity homes were viewed as punitive and humiliating experiences, birthmothers had others like themselves to commiserate with. But, not all birthmothers had the maternity home experience! Many were shipped out of town to serve time as maids, cleaning ladies, and nannies in exchange for a bed and food to survive. (I know of one young woman who had to care for two toddlers and an infant.) Still others lived in tiny apartments during pregnancy and moved to another location after relinquishment. Evans did not go to a maternity home. As a result, for more than two decades she didn't know of any woman who had surrendered her baby for adoption! Evans tells how she felt alone and isolated in her secret pain. Regardless of the setting where they lived out their pregnancies, birthmoms do share a sense of powerlessness! Most were sentenced to a life of inner shame, of unresolved loss. I give Evans five stars because her story shows the strength of the human spirit to survive.

This is an excellent book. If you or someone you know has is considering adoption as a birthmother or adoptive parent, you really ought to read this book. This book gives a detailed account of a woman's long ordeal from the point of being raped, pressure from the church to give up her son, her sense of loss, her search for her son, the triumphant moment when her son is found and then, finally the joyous time they meet again! An uplifting book that shows that with a determined spirit you can accomplish most any thing and in this case, find a lost loved one!
