Stories About AdoptioneBook - 2011
Our quest for origin and, by extension, identity is universal to the human experience. For the twenty-five contributors to Somebody's Child , the topic of adoption is not--and perhaps never can be--a neutral issue. With unique courage, each of them discusses their experience of the adoption process. Some share stories of heartbreak; others have discovered joy; some have searched for closure. Somebody's Child captures the many unforgettable faces and voices of adoption.
The third book in a series of anthologies about the twenty-first-century family, Somebody's Child follows Nobody's Mother and Nobody's Father , two essay collections from childless adults on parenthood, family and choices. Together, these three books challenge readers to reexamine traditional definitions of the concept of "family."
