Product Description

From the Author

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...

Format: Paperback
This book is full of the many aspirations, losses, and heartaches associated with looking for your birth parents. The author uses many terms to explain the feelings of the individual searching, as exhausted, apprehensive, questions of legality, happy, and so forth. The book also deals with racial segregation and racism in general. Overall, this book can touch the heart and lead the human spirit in many directions. Awesome, heart touching book

I read this book before starting a search for my birthmother. I found the chapters on search techniques well written and invaluable during my research. I used this book as my primary reference. I have now found my birthmother and am dealing with the emotional rollercoaster of the reunion process. I have read the chapters on reunions over and over to try and understand what my birthmother is feeling during this process. I would highly recommend this book. It is obviously written by someone who has lived the experience.

Format: Paperback
I had already found my birthparents when my birthmother brought this compelling book to my attention. There's a chapter dealing with the issue of "what to call" the new members of your family and it really hits home! This is also one of the only books that talks about birthfathers. I am desperate for literature on that subject and it reads nicely.
