From the Author
It has been my lifelong aspiration to write a book. I started writing a novel many times, but always ran out of inspiration. When I learned of my adoption several years ago and began a search for my birth-mother, I knew I had finally found the subject of my book.

Not mentioned in the book's description, and something that is definitely NOT for eveybody, is the author's reliance on Biblical teaching and prayer. As a practising Christian myself, I am all for prayer and Bible study but not to the exclusion of all else. God surely enables people to become proper doctors and psychiatrists, but this author opts not to trust them to help her. Instead, she uses a totally unqualified 'counsellor' from her church to assist her, to talk to her parents on her behalf, and to make decisions for her. He seems happy to allow her to focus solely on her own needs, whilst assuring her that God will find a way through her pain. Well, yes, He probably did, in the end, but a whole lot of other people had to go through it along with her.
If you are looking for a book on adoption to read, this is probably not for you - it is far too full of evanglistic Christian rubbish, and paints a very negative picture of life as an adopted person.
