The Girls Who Went Away (Anne Fessler)

This book was hard to read. As an adoptive mom, I hate to think about the pain that someone else had to experience in order for my husband and I to have children. I know that it sounds trite and dramatic, but I hate that our joy is someone else's hurt.

While I think (a lot) of coercion still exists in the adoption industry, I do think that moms today have more societal support to parent, if that's what they want to do.

I posted on my other blog about some of the passages that actually struck me and moved me to tears. It was a good read and my heart goes out to the moms portrayed in the book.
