A Refreshing First Mother & Adoptee Account May 25, 2008
The most refreshing part was that Sharon's daughter was not bitter or angry. It was also nice to see a first mother who felt empowered by her choice. Yes, Sharon Fieker does admit that the time period during which she gave birth and surrendered her daughter for adoption was one that was biased toward single, unwed mothers ~ however, she does not consider her child to be "stolen" or accuse Marge, Lori's adoptive mother, of being a classist, elitist woman out to steal another woman's child. That is the sad trend that exists in the adoption world today ~ blame.
I gave it four stars because Fieker can be a little loquacious at times in the book. I also wish there was a little more of Lori's perspective included in her own personal words, rather than correspondence. Overall, an easy, uplifting, enjoyable read.
An Adoptive Mom's Perspecitve Aug 13, 2007
As a Mom of a daughter that we adopted at birth, I was interested in the author's feelings and memories from the point of choosing adoption until reuniting with her daughter. This book depicts a beautiful story that is refreshing in light of all the negetive adoption reunion stories that we hear in the media. I know that this book was written for birth moms and the author expresses her feelings about being a birth mom extremley well. That being the case, I still feel that this would be a wonderful book for adoptive parents and their extended families to read, as it gives you a glimpse into the emotions and feelings of birth moms and is a good way to begin thinking how you, as an adoptive parent, will handle the experience when your child wants to find their biological parents. It is a quick read and a heart warming one at that!
A Positive Light on Adoption May 12, 2007
This was a very positive, spiritual look on adoption from a birthmother's point of view. It was a very easy, fast read. I enjoyed it. The only reason for the four stars and not five is, I wish the author would have written a little bit more about the feelings of loss & mourning... just a bit deeper. It is a huge part of adoption. Otherwise, it was a VERY positive look on the situation.
