  1. This great review got me to go to the library site to reserve it. Apparently lots of people have seen good reviews because there are already 101 requests for 19 copies on order, so it will be awhile, but that’s OK because my nightstand is spilling over.
    Jesus Land btw is horrific, devastatingly honest, and very well told.

  2. I will have to read this.
    I have been recently thinking a lot about the adoptee experiences I read about and see myself (two of my bio sibs were adtopted) and what I experienced myself (lost primary parent – mother, but not adopted) and why someone like myself doesn’t seem to go through anything resembling the same process.
    And I wonder that if it isn’t simply the loss (I know what that is like) but the attempt to replace it with arranged (adoptive) parents.
    But probably families are just very complex things regardless.
    Nice review.

  3. I don’t know where you manage to find all of these great articles. But thank you for posting them. I really appreciate it.
