I am currently reading your book,
Choices" and it is changing my life!
I am an adoptee in Albuquerque, NM, am
almost 43 years old and am just
discovering that much of my life's
struggles have been due to my loss at
birth. Thank you! Also, thank you for the
Christian aspect of this in your book.
There is so much psychology surrounding
this issue, it is sometimes difficult to
know how God feels about it all.
As an adult adoptee, I heartily
recommend this book to anyone touched by
adoption. Sherrie is a master at putting
words to feelings- especially from an
adoptee's perspective. This book will
help many to understand why they react as
they do, why they have problems in
relationships, and why it is so hard for
adoptees to give up control, even to God.
You will be touched by the openness of
the stories shared in the book, by
Sherrie and by the adoptees who
contributed. This is not a book about
blaming adoption for all our problems,
but instead is a book that will lead to
hope and healing.
