    Interesting Interviews

    I found the interviews with transracial adoptees really interesting, though at times it felt like the interviewer did more talking than the interviewees. The problem with the book is the inconsistency between the introductory analysis and the interviews. The intro is dry and it seemed like a few of the facts were inaccurate regarding the legislation. I really liked what the adoptees had to say, but I would like to have seen their perspectives pulled together and put into a broader context at the end of the book.

    Outstanding food for thought !

    This book has given much for our family to consider. We have been searching for resources in regards to international adoption. This book is a treasure! There are many points made in the book, but with a difference. These points are made by people who's lives were changed and molded in the framework of transracial adoption, not by committees, agencies, parties or groups. The people who gave their time and made their lives public should be thanked. Simon and Roorda have shed valuable light on transracial adoption issues. Even more, they have exposed racial issues that as a 'white' I never would have even dreamed of. It has opened my eyes to many, many things. I think this book could be a great starting point for a course on inter-racial communication.
