UNIVERSAL STORIES OF LONGING AND BELONGING

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."
