Complicated and Powerful Emotional Journey

Shay Stone, the central character of this book, invites us into her life experience that slays all general notions of adoption myths and stereotypes. Her complicated and powerful emotional journey from trauma towards healing is authentic and relatable not just to transracial adoptees, but also to survivors of abuse who must navigate that road to accept themselves and take their first step onto their healing journey, despite the forces that hold them back. Thank you, Ms. Lee, for sharing this complex story, told from an adoptee’s point of view. —Jenny
