Synopsis   
What becomes of women who give up their children for adoption? Why do so many adopted people feel such a strong desire to seek out their families of origin? In what ways are families with adopted children different from other families? This book by Evelyn Robinson provides the answers to these questions and many others. Evelyn Robinson gave up her son for adoption as a young student. She then returned to study many years later in a bid to understand her experience and its outcomes. She tells her story of an unplanned, teenage pregnancy and its aftermath and then describes the insights that she gained as a social worker into all aspects of adoption and how it affects those who are adopted, those who adopt and those whose children are adopted by others. Her startling conclusion about the future of adoption is challenging and controversial. This book is a brave and compelling exploration of both personal experience and academic research.
