Read if you are ready to work through hidden truths

I am a mother and recently met my relinquished son after 30 years. After an initial honeymoon period, some hard feelings have surfaced. I found your advice on reunions helpful. I have always resorted to being my own counselor because I never found one who understands. Discovering the realities has been painful too. This book puts it into perspective, and I would recommend for those ready to come out of denial and secrecy.

Interesting and thoughtful, but not my style of therapy. I don't care for workbook format.

For mothers (of adoption loss) this is the best book to read before you go into reunion. It is tragic and raw but it can help you to have better focus and validation about what you went through. Thanks to Karen, it is very close to what I personally went through... about 97% of it cover to cover. I can't recommend it enough but it is important to process it for awhile before you progress to other books on the subject such as Primal Wound, etc.
