Being Adopted

A book that is still widely cited 20 years after it was first published, which remains one of the few books of its kind written specifically for the adult adoptee. Along with two psychotherapists, I explore the ways in which the fact of being adopted affects a person's development at every stage of life. When asked how many adoptees end up searching for their birth parents, one of my co-authors answered, "All of them." They don't necessarily mount a literal search, but the question of their biological origins becomes one of the salient questions of their lives.
