The Declassified Adoptee: Essays of an Adoption Activist.....Published!

I already announced this on Facebook but haven't had a moment to update my blog.  With that said, I am so happy to announce that my book The Declassified Adoptee: Essays of an Adoption Activist was published on October 10, 2013 and is currently available as an eBook on Amazon.com.  Print copies will be sold on Amazon.com in November of this year.

This book project was something of which I had never dreamed way back when I started blogging 4.5 years ago.  4.5 years ago I did not know that I enjoyed writing; I did not realize that I really had anything to write about.  Yet, here I am.

I embarked on this blogging journey in an effort to locate my original family.  The process of searching soon became symbolic of finding myself.  The process of unsealing my records soon became symbolic of unfolding myself as a person who was adopted as a child.  Writing moved me from connecting to my family, to connecting to myself, to connecting to the larger community.  The time you have spent reading my words has given my words meaning.  Reading your thoughts has been invaluable.
