What People Are Saying

Annette Baran
An important contribution that speaks in a special voice. Its importance is primarily in its being written by a family therapist who understands systems theory. Taylor gives us her own story and shows how the events reverberated in the lives of all involved. That's what makes Shadow Train so interesting and different from other birthmother books. -- (Annette Baran, MSW, LCSW, co-author: The Adoption Triangle
Reuben Pannor
A very personal heartwarming story which is beautifully told. It takes you on a journey that truly touches the heart as Taylor recounts loss and love. Shadow Train describes three families with the love of one child in common and how those families learn to build caring, loving relationships. It is a story of our time. You will want to tell your friends to read it. -- (Reuben Pannor MSW, LCSW, co-author: The Adoption Triangle)
Rickie Solinger
A deeply felt story that confirms just how enduring is the pain of coerced separation and also affirms a heartwarming vision of &339;family.&339; -- (Rickie Solinger PhD , author: Wake Up Little Suzy: Single Pregnancy and Race Before Roe v. Wade)
