I am drafting my 2013 adoption themed reading list. Have any new books come out? Any old ones that might be worth reading? While I have read many (too many to list in fact) I welcome your suggestions even if they are repeats.
As noted in the comment thread with Katrina, I had started ROOM but did not finish it. Now that I have been told there is an adoption theme, I may have to pick it up again.
I am open to all – pure adoption books and memoirs – but also fiction that has an adoption theme.
Please suggest. Share you favorite and tell us why!

Sculpture: Memorial Of Unborn Children by Martin Hudack of Slovokia
Do not judge the bereaved mother. She comes in many forms. She is breathing, but she is dying. She may look young, but inside she has become ancient. She smiles, but her heart sobs. She walks, she talks, she cooks, she cleans, she works, she IS, but she IS NOT, all at once. She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity. -Author Unknown
The photo and quote above speaks to me both from the perspective of the tragedy in Connecticut but also all mothers who lost children to adoption, mothers who found children that want nothing to do with them, mothers everywhere who cry for lost children.
