May her son never read this book
We are naturally drawn to people or to writing that expresses feelings and thoughts we ourselves entertain but would not have dared to express in public. Jana Wolff¿s book is of this nature and one part of me admires her honesty, but the other, more important part, believes that if a child can get hurt, then honesty is better left unsaid or unprinted. I have no doubt that Jana Wolff¿s son has a strong connection with her and that love will guard both against any storms, but one never knows what he will feel when he reads his adoptive mother¿s book. She¿ll say: ¿That¿s what I felt at the time of your birth, but you know how much I love you today.¿ Will this be enough to convince him of his true place in his adoptive family? I am an adoptive mother and would not have wanted to put myself into this situation. Gisela Gasper Fitzgerald, author of ADOPTION: An Open, Semi-Open or Closed Practice?Was this review helpful?

At last! Someone I can relate to!
For anyone who has ever considered or completed adoption, this is a must read book. I am going to purchase a copy for all of my family members so they, too, can read this woman's story. I felt as if she had peered into my soul and had read my deepest, most intimate thoughts. I read it in one day! Thank you Jana Wolff for you candid, funny and very personal story!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
