Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A Literary Guild alternate in cloth, this wrenching account of a biological mother's reunion with the son whom her repressive family made her give up for adoption covers a wide range of adoption issues while testifying to the bonding power of motherhood.
School Library Journal
YA-- It is hard to remember the stigma placed upon unwed mothers during the early 1960s and 70s. Carol Schaefer was 19, in love, and pregnant, a disgrace to her Catholic family and a sinner against the Church. She was packed off to a convent home with girls in the same circumstances to await the her baby's birth. None of the girls had the option of keeping their children, and they were strongly discouraged from even seeing them after their birth. The young mothers-to-be were not to use their real names or form any friendships with one another. Carol gave birth to a son and spent the next 18 years haunted by his memory and her overwhelming need to find him. Although his adoption records were sealed, she surmounted all odds, and the two were reunited. This poignant story takes readers on a trip through sadness, despair, frustration, and joy. With so many adopted children searching for their roots today, The Other Mother gives a view of the other side of the search: birth mothers looking for lost children.
—Katherine Fitch, Jefferson Sci-Tech, Alexandria, Va.

    FINALLY..SOMEONE ELSE FEELS AS I DO....

    THIS BOOK TOUCHED ME SO DEEPLY..I THOUGHT THAT I WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT FELT THIS WAY. IT ECHOED SO TRUE TO THE EXPERIENCES THAT I HAD WHEN I GAVE UP MY SON 29 YEARS AGO. BACK THEN, YOU HAD TO KEEP SILENT AND SWALLOW ALL THE FEELINGS OF ANGUISH IN HAVING EMPTY ARMS. I JUST MET MY SON ON MARCH 5, 2000! AGAIN, THE SELF-DOUBTS THAT SHE FELT, THE WANTING TO TOUCH HIM FOREVER AND HOLD ONTO HIM SO THAT NOBODY COULD EVER TAKE HIM AWAY AGAIN. THIS IS A MUST-READ FOR ANYONE THAT GAVE UP THEIR CHILD. I NEEDED THIS BOOK SO MANY YEARS AGO!
