Thank you readers!
"Birthright" is now in it's third printing, and one of my greatest joys is when I am contacted by individuals who felt the book was beneficial. For me, the most special 'success' story is a very personal one. My birthmother Lee (who is also an adoptee) used "Birthright" to search for her own birthmother - and after a long and difficult effort, was successful. The first gift she ever sent her mother was a copy of "Birthright". My grandmother, who was eighty-years-old when she was 'found', later told me how reading the book helped her cope in the early days of our reunion. I never anticipated how the words and stories in "Birtright" would benefit so many people - nor what a profound effect it would have on my own family...
