Light on Adoption (Paperback)
"This book has been a long labour of love. It's an articulation of my life's work, which has been to understand the impact of adoption on my psyche, my emotions, my heart and my soul. After many years of therapy, self-help, searching, tragedies, trials and errors, research, reflection and determined effort, I have recovered my self. At long last I fully inhabit my body. I finally feel settled in my skin and accept myself as I am. I am what I am. I have bonded ... to me.
I want to encourage more adoptees-people who understand life through the particular lens of birth trauma and adoption-to come together and support each other to talk about our individual adoption experiences. By telling our truth-full stories we can effect positive change-for ourselves, our communities, and a more compassionate society. When we rise and shine, and collectively contribute the wisdom of our lived experience, we will cast light on the significance of early infant attachment."
