Discovering Truth, Grace and Healing After AdoptioneBook - 2015
If you are looking for a story of adoption and reunion with a tidy, technicolor ending, then I wish you luck on your continued search. Such an ending will not be found within the complicated pages of my story, though there were times on my journey with my family where I wish this could have been the case. What you will discover, if you decide to take a chance and decide to read my striking saga, are adoptive and biological families who struggled with balancing selfishness and selflessness, interpersonal growth with frightening risks, and encouraging hopes with discouraging heartbreak. You will also see how raw human elements of concerned friends and providers comes into play in a unique and offbeat way (poet-and-did-not-know-it glibness syndrome unintentional here). The process of my biological mother giving me up for adoption and our subsequent reunion process was bittersweet. It was not only bittersweet for my biological mother and me, but also for my adoptive parents and the rest of our families. Nobody in the family wanted to forge sweetness with artificial sweetener, so we had to take everything day by day. You will also experience a story, as the title suggests, redemption born out of grace. You do not need to be searching for a story about adoption or reunions in order to realize parallels in your own life within the challenges and celebrations featured in this true tale. Those seeking spiritual inspiration in a humorous, quirky tale may find it within my story, as they ascribe to the underlying message contained within: all of us need to learn how to be last in our own right so we can be first in providing the one thing that matters most in our lives: self-giving love.
