Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a great book you can hardly put down. The adventure that enfolds is presented in such a way that one can hardly put the book down. Every part of the story is enamored with emotion and feeling that relates to each event and gives the reader the sense of the outward love that made your faith a parade to finding your birth mother. Readers of the story sense your passion as they watch you grope and learn and find the tortuous path you had to take to fulfill your dream; a pathway through your past with previous family and religious and public institutions and their helpfulness and inadequacies, cooperation and obstruction, personal and legal maneuvering; every facet of every action by surprised and sympathetic but hesitating and mind questioning family—and the wielders of the rules of church and public and state institutions. That was an education, a fruitful one, on the mores of adoption. We bought a dozen copies and recommend your book to everyone. Fred and Millie Logan, Green Valley, Arizona.
