This is a short book. I read the whole thing in about an hour. It is clearly written for a more mature teen who is able to feel empathy for all others involved. Because it covers almost all types of adoptions (and there are many) only parts of the book will apply to your situation.

Strengths:
1) Does a good job describing the variety of thoughts a birth-mother might be feeling.
2) Gives lots of examples from real people affected by this issue showing the wide range of feelings one could have.

Weaknesses:
1) Does not touch on the special case where a child is removed from a dangerous home by the courts. In this case both the birth-mother and the child know each other and often want to be together, but can't be.
2) Assumes that the adoptive-parents fertility issues are the reason they chose adoption and implies that this is the cause of many of the missteps adoptive parents take.

We bought this book with the intention that it will help our daughter find answers and better understand herself.
We hope it will help her accept who she is for whom she is and not by the circumstances in which she came to be.

I am an adult adoptee and very active in the adoption community in my area. I am studying art therapy and counseling, I try to read every adoption related book I can. This is one I definitely do not recommend. The author has experience in a step family situation and was adopted by 1 parent, when the other remarried. Her writing reflects this experience and does not speak to or validate the variety of other possible experiences many adoptees have. This is not a book for adoptees coming from hard places, adoptees in international/ intercultural adoptions, adoptees in very difficult or crisis situations, or adoptees that find themselves with unsupportive adoptive parents. This book barely addresses any of these or other difficult issues, and covers most topics in a light simplistic way, and too often in an accidentally dismissive way. For example, on pg 27 she says "...you will see abandonment is not the proper word to describe birth parents who place their children with other families. Your birth mother did not abandon you." And she goes on to talk about how "your" birth mother made all these plans for a better life for "you". Although some birthmothers do make plans according to what they feel is best for their child, she leaves no room for the fact that some choose drugs over their children, some choose an orphanage over their child starving to death feeling it is the lesser of two horrible options, ect... These kinds of statements that allow for only one kind of birthmother, can deepen the feelings of isolation for an adopted youth. In addition, abandon means " to leave and never return" according to Webster's. Although not using the word abandon does sound more pleasant, we should not try to change the true definition of a word because it sounds too sad. Abandon is a word that can truly describe one's story or how one may feel, and this should be validated. Teens need to be encouraged to express their feelings and integrate them, and should be given all the words of the dictionary as they try to put the pieces of their own story together. Taking words away puts teens at a disadvantage. It can cripple their own understanding and thought process, as well as their ability or willingness to communicate with parents or others. Over and over thing book limits the experience of the adoptee to such a narrow field of experiences I am not sure it can apply to more than a few. The author does have many valid topics throughout, but these are so basic one can find them in most adoption books. And I find the chance of this book causing further discouragement, isolation, or frustration too great to buy this for any of my adoptee relatives or adopted kids I work with. Every single one of our adoption stories is different. Adoptees have so many ways to feel different and separate, no adoptee should have to feel isolated from other adoptees as well. Finding commonality, while honoring the existence of adoption differences is were adoptees can best can learn, feel heard, and be encouraged toward their most healthy selves.
Next I will be reading Dear Wonderful You, written by a variety of adult adoptees (those who have lost both parents), both domestic and internationally, and foster alum. At least this book will have the benefit of almost 30 first hand experiences and all the variations that come with that.
