I contributed to this new book (Adoption Reunion). I am an adoptee who made the journey back to my first family and I share the personal details of my reunion. I am thrilled to see Laura's anthology hit bookstores and ebook readers. The topic of Adoption Reunion is very complicated, knowing millions of adoptions took place in this past century. Today, millions of adopted children are now adults with the need to know how to navigate this journey, to find relatives, ancestry, ethnicity, answers... How others successfully find and reunite with their natural families is hardly written about... The essays in this new book are REAL and as important and as varied as the subject of adoption reunion. If you plan to adopt, I only ask that you read this book and make an informed decision. If you are a birthparent, read this book. If you are a foster parent, read this book. Adoptee's voices are honored in this book. My thanks to Laura and all the contributors for making adoption reunion a priority and a reality. It was the right time for THIS book!

Adoptionland: From Orphans to Activists [Ever wondered what it’s like to be adopted? This anthology begins with personal accounts and then shifts to a bird’s eye view on adoption from domestic, intercountry and transracial adoptees who are now adoptee rights activists. Along with adopted people, this collection also includes the voices of mothers and a father from the Baby Scoop Era, a modern-day mother who almost lost her child to adoption, and ends with the experience of an adoption investigator from Against Child Trafficking. These stories are usually abandoned by the very industry that professes to work for the “best interest of children,” “child protection,” and for families. However, according to adopted people who were scattered across nations as children, these represent typical human rights issues that have been ignored for too long. For many years, adopted people have just dealt with such matters alone, not knowing that all of us—as a community—have a great deal in common.]
