How It Feels to be Adopted

How It Feels to be Adopted

In these wonderfully straightforward accounts of what it means to children to be adopted, nineteen boys and girls, from eight to sixteen years old-and from every social background-confide their feelings about this crucial fact of their lives. It is deeply affecting to listen to these children as they reveal their questions, frustrations, difficulties, and joys with an honesty that is immediate, convincing, and stirring. Their generosity will provide solace and strength for thousands of other children who share with them the experience of being adopted-and who will be helped to understand that their own emotions are normal and appropriate. From the Trade Paperback edition.
