This is Evelyn Robinson's fourth book about adoption. For the first time, Evelyn has produced a book which includes the work of others. Forty-five parents who have lost children to adoption in seven different countries were generous enough to allow Evelyn to publish their narratives. Their stories make poignant and, at times, harrowing reading. Their contributions represent adoption as it was then (ie between 1958 and 1989) and Evelyn has added some information and some of her own opinions on adoption as it is now. Together they provide compelling and thought-provoking reading and will contribute in a very positive way to validating the feelings of those who have experienced adoption separation and educating the community around those experiences and the resulting outcomes.
