Book Description

…tells shared experiences of reunited adoptees and their birth family

Barbara Gonyo tells of the relinquishment of her son and her search
to keep her silent promise to him that she would someday find him.
Barbara shares her feelings of a love she discovers that breaks the
taboo of family love and brings on feelings that left unchecked would
become incest.

In her twenty two years of leading an adoption support group, her
honesty in sharing these feelings have brought hundreds of other
reunited adoptees and birthparents and siblings to her asking for help
in resolving these forbidden feelings of bonding.

The warmth of love mingled with the feelings of guilt and shame are
openly discussed in The Forbidden Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT Read!! March 26, 2014
By Heidi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is older, but highly informative!! I met my bio father in my late 20's, but never heard of GSA until I was in my 30's, when a doctor mentioned this book to me. Although my father and I have not had to deal with GSA, I did find the topic very interesting.

The book is written by a woman who met her son after he was grown, and experienced GSA. While she tells her story, there are also many short stories included from others who have experienced GSA.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who has met, or has plans to meet a biological family member for the first time in adulthood. I think it is very important for people who are in a situation where GSA may arise to be fully informed.

More About the Author

Barbara A. Gonyo is a mother and a grandmother and a painater, who had to write a book because she had something to say and wanted to educate people to understand a subject that is hard to understand unless you have lived it.
At 16 Barbara was forced to give up her first born son for adoption. She went on with her life trying to forget the pain in her heart where her son lived. At age 42 when he was 26, she searched for and found him and developed a relationship that was wonderful and frightening. It came to be called Genetic Sexual Attraction. Now, many years later she is able to tell her story and that of others who also became reunited with a relative that they were not allowed to know. Barbara has a website titled" Genetic Sexual Attraction" that has been running for over 10 years and is there for information and as a support group.
