I read this book cover to cover and could not put it down once I got started. Even though my adoption was not international and was same race there were so many things I could relate too. I now how it is to be put on display to make your adopted parents look like good people. I know how it is to be manipulated for their needs to be centered. I know what it is like to be reminded of how lucky you are to have been adopted. I also know what it is to be a sexual abuse survivor.
This book is really an amazing read for adoptees, adopting parents, birth/first parents, and any one that works with them. I feel so inspired to finish the book I started years ago and to continue my blog. Thank you JS Lee. —Merika aka Orphan Girl
