Born in Our Hearts: Stories of Adoption

An illumination of adoption and its ability to transform lives as they come together to form a family.

A heartwarming collection of true stories that weave a rich tapestry of the adoption experience from many different perspectives: birthmothers, adoptive parents and grandparents, and adopted children and adults. These inspiring stories reveal the challenges and joys of the lifelong adoption journey including: the pain of letting go of a child; the wonderment of meeting “your” perfect child halfway around the world; the challenges of adopting an older child already set in his ways; watching a child’s potential flourish in a loving environment; sibling rivalry and eventual bonding; integrating a child’s culture into a new multiracial family; finding peace in the search for identity, roots and unanswered questions; and feeling the happiness and love that comes from forming a family.

While each story is unique, the emotions conveyed are universal: love, loss, hope and joy.

The collection will appeal to everyone affected by adoption, regardless of their phase in the journey.

Stunning black-and-white photos are included.
