Personal sagas of adoption's particular issues and experiences fill this thought-provoking look at 25 adoptive families, written by a prominent expert who was an early champion of open adoption. Clinical psychologist Mary Ann Koenig recounts real-life stories of adoptees and their relationships with both their birth and adoptive parents. Anyone who is part of an adoptive family or is contemplating adopting a child is sure to learn from the circumstances told in these stories and derive enormous inspiration from the triumphs and insights of these ordinary-but quite extraordinary-relationships. Essays are graced by vintage and contemporary photographs. Dr. Mary Ann Koenig, an adoptee herself, has counseled adoptees, birth parents, and adoptive parents for more than twenty years. Niki Berg's photographs have appeared in Ms. and Smithsonian.
