Product Description

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 life. 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.

    Stories are from kids 16 and under. Quick short reads - might be helpful for those under 16, but not so much for older (or so they say). Over all, good stories.
