The Same Smile is a valiant recounting of the story of the loss of one daughter to adoption in the time now known as the Baby Scoop Era, and another as a teenager by death from leukemia. Instead of being a story of self-pity, tragedy and loss, it is a story of a mother's triumph. While there is sadness, the over all theme is courage, love and faith, despite the fact of horrific, unthinkable losses.
Susan bravely bares her secrets to the world and tells her story calmly and with great dignity. It is a beautiful book with a message of hope to every mother of loss.
Thank you, Susan, for writing it.
