I returned from vacation today. I went to London for a week. As is typical of me, prior to my excursion, I loaded up my iPad Kindle with a few books. The only one I read was Taking Down the Wall by Christine Murphy.
Christine is a found adoptee and in her book she chronicles her experience and process of integrating the many facets of her adopted and reunited life. I could go on and on about it but for now I merely want to recommend it. Overall, what I loved most was her raw honesty in it. I suspect my daughter feels (or felt) many of the emotions Christine expresses. In fact, thinking to the few emails I did receive from my daughter almost ten years ago I know for sure she does.
I recommend this book highly to mothers who have been rejected/refused/limbo’ed in reunion.
Here is the link on Amazon.
Here is a link to an adoptee post about the book on Lost Daughters. Rebecca (author of said post) was the one who recommended the book to me. I am glad she did.
