I have decided to write this memoir to encourage others who might be thinking of adopting. My parents were young when they decided to foster a child and then adopt me. The most important quality they had was loving hearts. Their dedication will be obvious as you read. Other adoptees may find my experiences interesting too. A dear friend in the present has enjoyed comparing her experiences as an adoptee with mine. She, too, had wonderful parents and two brothers who were also adopted. Of course, each person’s childhood is unique because each of us are unique.
I hope you enjoy the time travel from now back to the ’40s and ’50s.
However a family is formed, it is one of the most challenging and rewarding things you may ever do.
