Gathering the Missing Pieces in an Adopted Life
Hannibal Books, 2008 - 200 pages
What do you say to a mother you've never seen? This book--written from a Christian perspective--contains true stories of trial and triumph in the search for birth families by adoptees. Written by an adopted Pulitzer Prize nominee. Ever surrounded by the love and security of the only family she had ever known, Kay Moore wondered constantly about her unknown past. Would her birth mother even be willing to meet her? Would her adoptive parents think she was ungrateful for needing so desperately to know? How would changing attitudes and new laws affect her search? That search led Kay to other adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth families. She discovered that her feelings were the shared legacy of people everywhere who want the whole truth about who they are. Their stories, told here, yield a world of inspiration and practical direction which Kay presents with a sensitivity possible only from one who has "been through it" herself. She knows what questions you'll need to answer for a successful search and includes a listing of resources you can use along the way. You'll see just how to pull together the missing pieces in your own past and fully discover your God-given heritage.
