Hannah's journey is amazing - her writing is honest and skillful. This is an essential read if you want to know how being adopted feels - the inner conflict and guilt mixed with joy and gratitude. For me, this has some of the best descriptions of how it feels to be adopted - some of her observations pierced me to the core. I have discussed this book with friends who are adopted and they agree - joy and pain. At last I have found someone who could put into words how it feels to be adopted.
