Anyone who has watched Long Lost Family knows how interesting adoption stories can be and we are just lucky voyeurs in reading (or seeing) people search for their child or search for their parents.

This book is the true experience of the author, herself adopted, in her search for a child she gave up as a young mother.

To be able to read her perspective from both sides of adoption is what makes this book so riveting. Without giving too much away, her story of being an unwed teen, pregnant by her high school boyfriend, was not without its struggles and pain.

The author spends time discussing the experience of living in an unwed-mothers home and the influences pressed upon her in that period of her life.

The books is nicely arranged and organized making for a smooth read over several days, or one that can be stopped and started again with little need for review or a good memory.
