Astonishing tale of adoption and attitudes of the time.
on 24 July 2013
This beautiful story of adoption and a journey made which had so much stacked against it.
At various points in Katharine's young life fate could have taken her life along such different paths. Had her skin tone just been a shade darker or her father been allowed to take her back to Iran a whole other life would have been unrecognisable. The authors tenacious approach to discovering her beginnings is inspirational and encouraging to anyone who has adoption and unanswered questions in their family. As well as an engaging and personal account of her own experiences the factual information is informative and helpful for anyone who was adopted during the 60's or early 70's. It is hard to believe all this wasn't so long ago and how attitudes have changed so much.
