Editorial Reviews

Review

"A bright glimpse of a previously dark subject.... The book is as true and open as the changes advocated...comprehensive, factual, forward-looking, totally honest, readable and thoughtful." -- Los Angeles Times

"The Adoption Triangle urges a policy whose time has come...well-edited and poignant case histories." -- New York Times

14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Blair on October 3, 1998
Format: Paperback
This is one of the finest books ever written on the subject of adoption. Reading this book, in my opinion, is one of the best gifts that any adoptive parent could give to their child or to themselves. The insights provided by the authors are invaluable in helping adoptees, adoptive parents and birth parents alike understand the exquisitely unique and complex issues that adoption "triad" members face throughout their lives. This book dispels a lot of commonly held beliefs and myths about adoption, and provides a sober look at the reality of what it means to be an infertile parent, or a beholding adoptee; and it addresses the myriad of expectations that inevitably lead to hurt and disappointment. Armed with the knowledge and insights revealed in this book, adoptees and adoptive parents can forge a happier life together; and birthparents will find comfort in knowing that others understand their sacrifices. As a reunited birthfather and an advocate for better communications between adoption triad members, I highly recommend this book. Buy it ... it will change your life!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Judith Land on July 8, 2011
Format: Paperback
Adoptees considering doing an adoption search should read this book. Concepts like genealogical bewilderment refer to potential identity problems that are experienced by children who are fostered or adopted. There is much to learn before adopting a child and this is a good place to start. This well written book was considered a key reference by Judith and Martin Land in Adoption Detective: Memoir of an Adopted Child. References: Page 275
