“All you get in this lifetime is yourself, and everyone else is a gift given for an uncertain period of time.”
Vanessa McGrady, Rock Needs River: A Memoir About a Very Open Adoption

“moony blue eyes and kept his short body in”
Vanessa McGrady, Rock Needs River: A Memoir About a Very Open Adoption

“Their experience, in the end, was ugly, humiliating. Scary. They felt, basically, like baby machines after their adoption experience—they were chattel to social workers, with the baby as the valuable commodity; they were marginalized in the hospital when they tried to assert their rights to hand over their child; they were garbage when they were abandoned by the agency in the face of medical bills that went unpaid.”
Vanessa McGrady, Rock Needs River: A Memoir About a Very Open Adoption
