Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

This book, narrated mostly by Chris Fabry, is part biography and part Michael Reagan on political and social issues. Fabry's reading is clear, even-paced, and sympathetic to the text. He clearly communicates Reagan's conversational tone and conveys the exhortatory nature of the book. Reagan reads some portions of his text, and he is a skilled communicator, as well. Moreover, the production includes Reagan's moving eulogy at his father's funeral. The book is not only biographical, but also puts forth the author's thoughts on issues. For example, in discussing his parents' divorce, he offers a discussion of the impact of changes in divorce laws and what reforms could be offered.

I picked up this book in the bookstore today and read halfway through it while I stood there.
Nola Buford
It is clear that God has healed him from the harmful effects of his past experiences, but also clear that he still feels pain from them.

Michael writes a beautiful tribute to his family and how much he was loved by his father and how welcome he felt when he was with him.

Great heart wrenching story of the pain and trials Michael faced growing with the shame of molestation hanging over his head and weighing down his heart. Great story of redemption and where he found his peace,strength,his ability to forgive and Who changed his life from misery to joy. Don't miss this one.

Michael Reagan has opened his life and the horrendous experiences he endured enroute to adulthood, respect and prominence. His was a tragic "journey." Yet every painful moment was a catalyst for his ultimate discovery; that is, the power of love. Well written. Inspirational.

I picked up this book in the bookstore today and read halfway through it while I stood there. I was so touched by Michael's story, for I could relate to so many of the emotions he felt as a child. I also appreciate the fact that he made positive suggestions about ways to help children who have faced the same sensitive issues that he has faced. The book is well written, and I higly recommend it to hurting people, as a means of better understanding, that they are not alone and to others who need to know how to commiserate with people about issues, that they have never faced.

I could hardly put this book down. I learned so much more than I had ever known before. The feelings adoptive children go thru, how molestation affects children and the way chidren think and feel when they do not have their parents in their lives full time. He gives so many valuable tips for parents to make sure their children know they are loved, and how to teach children about molestation to hopefully prevent it happening to their own.

This is truly a must read for parents.

I enjoyed the book. It was a book I can finally relate to since I have also walked in Michael's shoes in alot of the things that he had in his life. I recommend the book to anyone who is an adopted child to read this or who has been molested or wants to keep your children safe its the book for you.. Mr Reagan you did a job well done.. Thankyou for doing so...

Format: Hardcover
Twice Adopted is a remarkable book on many levels. First, it deals with the issue of adoption, then with the traumatic issue of child-molestation, with being the son of well-known parents, with being an angry young man, with finding redemptive love and finally with the liberation of confession.

In telling his story, Michael Reagan addresses topics all of us deal with in some way, at some time. By telling it from a child's perspective, he takes each reader back into his or her own childhood as we relate to what he must have felt. In the process, he challenges us to think more profoundly about how we influence the children with whose care we have been entrusted.

Best of all, he leaves us with the gift of hope. No matter what we have experienced, regardless of mistakes we might have made - if we are still breathing God has not given up on us yet. Read this book and let it change the way you look at your past, live with your present and take hold of at your future.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Joseph J. Slevin VINE VOICE on February 8, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is a heartfelt book written from a perspective of being adopted first by Ronald Reagan, then by God. Michael writes a beautiful tribute to his family and how much he was loved by his father and how welcome he felt when he was with him.

I was touched by the stories of President Reagan's last days. I will save that for you to read, because if you cried during the Reagan funeral, a tear will well up in your eye when you read this.

More than anything, Michael writes about hope in a potentially dark world. His personal experience becomes a lesson for us all at how serious we need to take whom we leave our children with. The lesson is poinant and not so graphic as to upset the reader.

I like this book and recommend it heartily.

Format: Hardcover
Michael Reagan tells his story from a child's point of view---he tells about how it felt to learn he was adopted, about his parents' divorce---how it felt and what he needed. He shares the untold story of why his parents---Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman---divorced. Theirs is a heartbreaking story that did not have to end in divorce. He also shares his story of violation at the hands of a trusted mentor and, through this story, he gives valuable insights into the debate about same-sex marriage. This book is full of wisdom and it should be "required reading" for teachers, social workers, counselors, parents.... and everyone else. He helps explain what's behind some of the out-of-control rage that can propel teens to terrorize and murder their classmates.
